Hello ,

The curly braces are just for debugging purpose so please ignore it.

Below is the updated patch :


                if (!trylock_page(page))
                        goto keep;

                VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(PageActive(page), page);

                sc->nr_scanned++;

                if (unlikely(!page_evictable(page)))
-                       goto activate_locked;
+                      goto cull_mlocked;

                if (!sc->may_unmap && page_mapped(page))
                        goto keep_locked;

Sorry, but 4.14.65 does not have braces around trylock_page(),
like in your patch below.

See  https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux.git/tree/mm/vmscan.c?h=v4.14.65
