Subject[PATCH 6/9] kstaled: rate limit pages scanned per second.
Date
Scan some number of pages from each node every second, instead of trying to
scan the entime memory at once and being idle for the rest of the configured
interval.

In addition to spreading the CPU usage over the entire scanning interval,
this also reduces the jitter between two consecutive scans of the same page.
