Subject[RESEND RFC v4 0/3] mm: make swapin readahead to gain more thp performance
Date
This patch series makes swapin readahead up to a
certain number to gain more thp performance and adds
tracepoint for khugepaged_scan_pmd, collapse_huge_page,
__collapse_huge_page_isolate.

This patch series was written to deal with programs
that access most, but not all, of their memory after
they get swapped out. Currently these programs do not
get their memory collapsed into THPs after the system
swapped their memory out, while they would get THPs
before swapping happened.

This patch series was tested with a test program,
it allocates 800MB of memory, writes to it, and
then sleeps. I force the system to swap out all.
Afterwards, the test program touches the area by
writing and leaves a piece of it without writing.
This shows how much swap in readahead made by the
patch.

Test results:
