[patch] slab: resize the alien caches too

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



While going through the slab code, I observed that alien caches are
not getting resized, when user changes the slab tunables. Appended patch
tries to fix this. Please review and let me know if I missed anything.


Resize the alien caches too based on the slab tunables.
