Subject[PATCH 27/27] sched: Retry migration of tasks to CPU on a preferred node
Date
When a preferred node is selected for a tasks there is an attempt to migrate
the task to a CPU there. This may fail in which case the task will only
migrate if the active load balancer takes action. This may never happen if
the conditions are not right. This patch will check at NUMA hinting fault
time if another attempt should be made to migrate the task. It will only
make an attempt once every five seconds.
