Thanks for pointing out this. Changelog updated accordingly.

I'd expect its impact to be negletable, because 1024 pages are
not extraordinary large. But sure, that's much larger than 125 pages
- the maximum zone stats update threshold(zone_pcp->stat_threshold).

Thanks,

vmscan: ZVC updates in shrink_active_list() can be done once
This effectively lifts the unit of updates to nr_inactive_* and pgdeactivate
from PAGEVEC_SIZE=14 to SWAP_CLUSTER_MAX=32, or MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES=1024 for
reclaim_zone().
