Subject[PATCH 06/19] mm/mpol: Add MPOL_MF_LAZY ...
From: Lee Schermerhorn <lee.schermerhorn@hp.com>

This patch adds another mbind() flag to request "lazy migration".
The flag, MPOL_MF_LAZY, modifies MPOL_MF_MOVE* such that the selected
pages are simply unmapped from the calling task's page table ['_MOVE]
or from all referencing page tables [_MOVE_ALL]. Anon pages will first
be added to the swap [or migration?] cache, if necessary. The pages
will be migrated in the fault path on "first touch", if the policy
dictates at that time.

"Lazy Migration" will allow testing of migrate-on-fault via mbind().
Also allows applications to specify that only subsequently touched
pages be migrated to obey new policy, instead of all pages in range.
This can be useful for multi-threaded applications working on a
large shared data area that is initialized by an initial thread
resulting in all pages on one [or a few, if overflowed] nodes.
After unmap, the pages in regions assigned to the worker threads
will be automatically migrated local to the threads on 1st touch.
