Subject: [PATCH 3.13 146/187] drm/ttm: Choose a pool to shrink correctly in ttm_dma_pool_shrink_scan(). -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Tetsuo Handa <>

commit 46c2df68f03a236b30808bba361f10900c88d95e upstream.

We can use "unsigned int" instead of "atomic_t" by updating start_pool
variable under _manager->lock. This patch will make it possible to avoid
skipping when choosing a pool to shrink in round-robin style, after next
patch changes mutex_lock(_manager->lock) to !mutex_trylock(_manager->lork).
