Grad to hear that.

Seems good result under several simple tests after fixing
inactive_anon_is_low(). But needed some fixes for corner cases,
add hook to uncharge, hook to cpu hotplug, etc....and making codes
slim, tuning parameters to make more sense. (or adding comments.)

I wonder whether it's convenient to post v2 before new mmotm.
(mmotm includes some fixes around memcg/vmscan.)
I'll continue test (hopefully more complicated cases on big machine.)

Anyway, I often update patch to v5 or more before posting final ones ;)
