Subject: [PATCH] sched/core: Free the stack early if
CONFIG_THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK
commit 68f24b08ee892d47bdef925d676e1ae1ccc316f8 upstream.
We currently keep every task's stack around until the task_struct
itself is freed. This means that we keep the stack allocation alive
for longer than necessary and that, under load, we free stacks in
big batches whenever RCU drops the last task reference. Neither of
these is good for reuse of cache-hot memory, and freeing in batches
prevents us from usefully caching small numbers of vmalloced stacks.
On architectures that have thread_info on the stack, we can't easily
change this, but on architectures that set THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK, we
can free it as soon as the task is dead.
