Subject[PATCH v5 0/6] memg: better numa scanning

No major update since the last version I posted 27/Jul.
The patch is rebased onto mmotm-Aug3.

This patch set implements a victim node selection logic and some
behavior fix in vmscan.c for memcg.
The logic calculates 'weight' for each nodes and a victim node
will be selected by comparing 'weight' in fair style.
The core is how to calculate 'weight' and this patch implements
a logic, which make use of recent lotation logic and the amount
of file caches and inactive anon pages.

I'll be absent in 12/Aug - 17/Aug.
I'm sorry if my response is delayed.

In this time, I did 'kernel make' test ...as
==
#!/bin/bash -x

cgset -r memory.limit_in_bytes=500M A

make -j 4 clean
sync
sync
sync
echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
sleep 1
echo 0 > /cgroup/memory/A/memory.vmscan_stat
cgexec -g memory:A -g cpuset:A time make -j 8
==
On 8cpu, 4-node fake-numa box.
(each node has 2cpus.)

Under the limit of 500M, 'make' need to scan memory to reclaim.
This tests see how vmscan works.

When cpuset.memory_spread_page==0.

elapsed time for vmscan and the number of page faults are reduced.


When cpuset.memory_spread_page==1, in this case, file cache will be
spread to the all nodes in round robin.
