[Bug 1533646] Re: Could you set vm.allocate_pgste = 1 by default?


In my opinion it will be best to set vm.allocate_pgste = 1
unconditionally, regardless of whether qemu is installed or not, and
only have the user switch it off for certain memory-intensive workloads
(if required at all).

  Could you set vm.allocate_pgste = 1 by default?

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  to use qemu one needs  vm.allocate_pgste = 1, on kernels that support that setting e.g. s390x.
  I'm now setting it with a sysctl.d snippet in procps package, however I was wondering if it could be set by default.

  Or not.
