Subject[RFC 4/4] mm, thp: wake up khugepaged when huge page is not available
Date
After previous patch, THP page faults check the thp_avail_nodes nodemask to
determine whether to attempt allocating hugepage or fallback immediately.
The khugepaged task is responsible for attempting reclaim and compaction for
nodes where hugepages are not available, and updating the nodemask as
appropriate.

To get faster reaction on THP allocation failures, we will wake up khugepaged
whenever THP page fault has to fallback. This includes both situations when
hugepage was supposed to be available, but allocation fails, and situations
where hugepage is already marked as unavailable. In the latter case, khugepaged
will not wait according to its alloc_sleep_millisecs parameter under /sys, but
retry allocation immediately. This is done to scale the khugepaged activity
with respect to THP demand, instead of a fixed tunable. Excessive compaction
failures are still being prevented by the self-tuning deferred compaction
mechanism in this case. For this mechanism to work as intended, the check for
deferred compaction should be done on each THP allocation attempt to bump the
internal counter, and waiting full alloc_sleep_millisecs period could make the
deferred periods excessively long.
