Kosaki-san:

Rik is currently out on holiday and I've been traveling. Just getting
back to rebasing to 24-rc8-mm1. Thank you for your efforts in testing
and tracking down the regressions. I will add your fixes into my tree
and try them out and let you know. Rik mentioned to me that he has a
fix for the "get_scan_ratio()" calculation that is causing us to OOM
kill prematurely--i.e., when we still have lots of swap space to evict
swappable anon. I don't know if it's similar to what you have posted.
Have to wait and see what he says. Meantime, we'll try your patches.

Again, thank you.

Regards,
Lee
