Subject[PATCH 20/31] mm, vmscan: only wakeup kswapd once per node for the requested classzone
Date
kswapd is woken when zones are below the low watermark but the wakeup
decision is not taking the classzone into account. Now that reclaim is
node-based, it is only required to wake kswapd once per node and only if
all zones are unbalanced for the requested classzone.

Note that one node might be checked multiple times if the zonelist is
ordered by node because there is no cheap way of tracking what nodes have
already been visited. For zone-ordering, each node should be checked only
once.
