Switch kernel transparent huge-pages to madvise
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

At some point our kernel config ended up with:

CONFIG_TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE_ALWAYS=y
# CONFIG_TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE_MADVISE is not set

TL;DR This is the wrong way around. We should be using madvise. Currently *all* applications are using THP which drives up memory usage, and causes issues with lockups
when copying to USB/SDHCI etc.

..Fix it. :p
