[PATCH] linearly index zone->node_zonelists[]



I wonder why we need this bitmask indexing into zone->node_zonelists[]?

We always start with the highest zone and then include all lower zones
if we build zonelists.

Are there really cases where we need allocation from ZONE_DMA or
ZONE_HIGHMEM but not ZONE_NORMAL? It seems that the current implementation
of highest_zone() makes that already impossible.

If we go linear on the index then gfp_zone() == highest_zone() and a lot
of definitions fall by the wayside.

We can now revert back to the use of gfp_zone() in mempolicy.c ;-)

/*
* When a memory allocation must conform to specific limitations (such
* as being suitable for DMA) the caller will pass in hints to the
* allocator in the gfp_mask, in the zone modifier bits. These bits
* are used to select a priority ordered list of memory zones which
* match the requested limits. GFP_ZONEMASK defines which bits within
* the gfp_mask should be considered as zone modifiers. Each valid
* combination of the zone modifier bits has a corresponding list
* of zones (in node_zonelists). Thus for two zone modifiers there
* will be a maximum of 4 (2 ** 2) zonelists, for 3 modifiers there will
* be 8 (2 ** 3) zonelists. GFP_ZONETYPES defines the number of possible
* combinations of zone modifiers in "zone modifier space".
*
* As an optimisation any zone modifier bits which are only valid when
* no other zone modifier bits are set (loners) should be placed in
* the highest order bits of this field. This allows us to reduce the
* extent of the zonelists thus saving space. For example in the case
* of three zone modifier bits, we could require up to eight zonelists.
* If the left most zone modifier is a "loner" then the highest valid
* zonelist would be four allowing us to allocate only five zonelists.
* Use the first form for GFP_ZONETYPES when the left most bit is not
* a "loner", otherwise use the second.
*
* NOTE! Make sure this matches the zones in <linux/gfp.h>
* match the requested limits. See gfp_zone() in include/linux/gfp.h
