Subject[PATCH 09/40] autonuma: introduce kthread_bind_node()
Date
This function makes it easy to bind the per-node knuma_migrated
threads to their respective NUMA nodes. Those threads take memory from
the other nodes (in round robin with a incoming queue for each remote
node) and they move that memory to their local node.
