Marek Szyprowski Nov. 8, 2012, 6:59 a.m.
Commits 2139cbe627b89 ("cma: fix counting of isolated pages") and
d95ea5d18e69951 ("cma: fix watermark checking") introduced a reliable
method of free page accounting when memory is being allocated from CMA
regions, so the workaround introduced earlier by commit 49f223a9cd96c72
("mm: trigger page reclaim in alloc_contig_range() to stabilise
watermarks") can be finally removed.
