Subject: Re: [PATCH RFC 2/2] mm, hugetlb: do not rely on overcommit limit
 during migration

Yes, this would work.

However, I think a simple modification to your previous free_huge_page
changes would make this unnecessary.  I was confused in your previous
patch because you decremented the per-node surplus page count, but not
the global count.  I think it would have been correct (and made this
patch unnecessary) if you decremented the global counter there as well.

Of course, this patch makes the surplus accounting more explicit.

If we move forward with this patch, one issue below.

You need to take hugetlb_lock before adjusting the surplus counts.
