If zonesort is used as below while using knl (Xeon Phi 7250), a message indicating that zone 3 is not initialized is displayed.

[root@node0001 ~]# echo 0 > /sys/kernel/zone_sort_free_pages/nodeid; tail -n 1 /var/log/messages
May 25 10:42:54 node0001 kernel: zonesort: Zone 3 is not initialized
[root@node0001 ~]#

 

Below is the modinfo for the zonesort module in use, which was in the xpps package.

[root@node0001 ~]# modinfo zonesort

What does zone 3 mean? 

Is there any performance problem after this message is printed? 

Anyone know how to solve it?
