--- Comment #4 from howaboutsynergy is abandoned account everywhere (howaboutsynergy@...me) ---
The commit that attempts to fix this(and thus links to this issue) is causing a
system freeze (where sysctl+s,u,b still works though) when attempting to cause
a memory pressure via script `memfreeze`(ran as variant 1) which I used in
order to test
[le9g.patch](https://www.phoronix.com/forums/forum/phoronix/general-discussion/1118164-yes-linux-does-bad-in-low-ram-memory-pressure-situations-on-the-desktop?p=1119440#post1119440)
that prevents disk thrashing, but this system freeze happens without that patch
also.

```
commit aa56a292ce623734ddd30f52d73f527d1f3529b5
    drm/i915/userptr: Acquire the page lock around set_page_dirty()
```

The freeze seems to be happening right before OOM-killer is about to kill
something, apparently.

I double checked that v5.3-rc4 with this commit reverted does indeed get rid of
the system freeze.

`memfreeze` script is this:

```

#!/bin/bash

#run this multiple times consecutively, but not at once.

#this should freeze i87k for about 1-2 seconds(actually 5 seconds - try running
top of watch -n1 -d cat /proc/meminfo) while running out of memory temporarily
just before OOM triggers and kills one of the threads:
#^ old comments

#Ensure watchers are running:
ensure_this_runs_already() {
  local cmdtorun="$*"
  if ! pgrep --full "^${cmdtorun}$" >/dev/null; then
    #shellcheck disable=SC2086
    xfce4-terminal -x $cmdtorun  #XXX: unquoted! else it will fail to launch!
  fi
}
ensure_this_runs_already "watch -n.1 -d cat /proc/meminfo"
#ensure_this_runs_already watch -n.1 -d cat /proc/meminfo #yes this works too!
I even tested it.
ensure_this_runs_already "top -d 0.5"
ensure_this_runs_already "sudo iotop -d 5 -o -b"
#exit 1


#XXX tested on i87k host
systemctl --user stop psd #otherwise have to manually rename 2+1 profile dirs
from *-backup to * after the system crashes(and it does with
5.3.0-rc4-gd45331b00ddb kernel, not with 5.2.0 (git) though, or 5.2.4 (stable)
)
if test "${0##*/}" == "memfreeze2"; then
  variant=2
elif test "${0##*/}" == "memfreeze3"; then
  variant=3
else
  variant=1
fi
echo "!! Using memfreeze variant '$variant'"

if test "$1" != "keepswap"; then
  echo "! swapoff first"
  sudo swapoff -a
  threads=2
  timeout=10s
else
  threads=6
  timeout=30s
fi
sync #because possibly crash! in fact guaranteed crash in
5.3.0-rc4-gd45331b00ddb even without any le*.patch-es

if test "$variant" == "1"; then
  #this is a remnant from when I've tested this on QubesOS
  alloc="$(awk '/MemAvailable/{printf "%d\n", $2 + 4000;}' < /proc/meminfo)"
  echo "Will alloc: $alloc kB for each of the $threads concurrent threads."
  echo "MemTotal before: $(awk '/MemTotal/{printf "%d kB\n", $2;}' <
/proc/meminfo)"
  time stress --vm-bytes "${alloc}k" --vm-keep -m $threads --timeout $timeout
  echo "exit code: $?"
  awk '/MemTotal/{printf "MemTotal afterwards: %d kB\n", $2;}' < /proc/meminfo
elif test "$variant" == "2"; then
  time stress -m 220 --vm-bytes 10000000000 --timeout 20
elif test "$variant" == "3"; then
  #XXX say bye bye to Xorg, courtesy of kernel's OOM-killer FIXME: somehow
disable oom-killer or what?!
  time stress -m 3000 --vm-bytes 10M --timeout 50
else
  echo "!! memfreeze variant not implemented"
fi
```
