Subject[PATCH 11/21] memcg-make-inactive_anon_is_low.patch
Changelog:
v1 -> v2:
- add detail patch description
- fix coding style in mem_cgroup_set_inactive_ratio()
- add comment to mem_cgroup_set_inactive_ratio
- remove extra newline
- memcg::inactiveratio change type to unsigned int


The inactive_anon_is_low() is key component of active/inactive anon balancing on reclaim.
However current inactive_anon_is_low() function only consider global reclaim.

Therefore, we need following ugly scan_global_lru() condision.

if (lru == LRU_ACTIVE_ANON &&
(!scan_global_lru(sc) || inactive_anon_is_low(zone))) {
shrink_active_list(nr_to_scan, zone, sc, priority, file);
return 0;


it cause that memcg reclaim always deactivate pages when shrink_list() is called.
To make mem_cgroup_inactive_anon_is_low() improve active/inactive anon balancing of memcgroup.
