hugetlb: do not allow pagesize >= MAX_ORDER pool adjustment
Eric B Munson [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 23:47:27 +0000 (15:47 -0800)]
Huge pages with order >= MAX_ORDER must be allocated at boot via the
kernel command line, they cannot be allocated or freed once the kernel is
up and running.  Currently we allow values to be written to the sysfs and
sysctl files controling pool size for these huge page sizes.  This patch
makes the store functions for nr_hugepages and nr_overcommit_hugepages
return -EINVAL when the pool for a page size >= MAX_ORDER is changed.
