Subject: Re: [RFC PATCH 1/2] mm, vmscan: account the number of isolated pages
 per zone

Tetsuo,
before we settle on the proper fix for this issue, could you give the
patch a try and try to reproduce the too_many_isolated() issue or
just see whether patch [1] has any negative effect on your oom stress
testing?
