Hacking generic MM code with Android-specific callback is probably a major
issue with your patch. Also I CC'd -mm maintainers and lists since your patch
touches page_alloc.c. Always run get_maintainer.pl before sending a patch. I
added them this time.

Have you looked at the recent PSI work that Suren and Johannes have been
doing [1]? As I understand, userspace lmkd may be migrated to use that at some
point. Suren can provide more details. I am sure AOSP contributions to make
LMKd better by using the PSI backend would be appreciated. Please consider
collaborating on that and help out, thanks. Check the cover-letter of that
patch [1] where LMKd is mentioned.

thanks,

- Joel
