Subject[PATCH 2/2] Make batch size for memory accounting configured according to size of memory
Date
Currently the per cpu counter's batch size for memory accounting is
configured as twice the number of cpus in the system. However,
for system with very large memory, it is more appropriate to make it
proportional to the memory size per cpu in the system.

For example, for a x86_64 system with 64 cpus and 128 GB of memory,
the batch size is only 2*64 pages (0.5 MB). So any memory accounting
changes of more than 0.5MB will overflow the per cpu counter into
the global counter. Instead, for the new scheme, the batch size
is configured to be 0.4% of the memory/cpu = 8MB (128 GB/64 /256),
which is more inline with the memory size.
