SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] - Randomize node rotor used in cpuset_mem_spread_node()
Some workloads that create a large number of small files tend to assign
too many pages to node 0 (multi-node systems). Part of the reason is that
the rotor (in cpuset_mem_spread_node()) used to assign nodes starts
at node 0 for newly created tasks.

This patch changes the rotor to be initialized to a random node number
of the cpuset.

NOTE: this patch is on TOP of the previous patch:
[PATCH] - New round-robin rotor for SLAB allocations
