Subject[PATCH RFC 4/5] mm/ksm, proc: introduce remote merge
Date
Use previously introduced remote madvise knob to mark task's
anonymous memory as mergeable.

To force merging task's VMAs, "merge" hint is used:

# echo merge > /proc/<pid>/madvise

Force unmerging is done similarly:

# echo unmerge > /proc/<pid>/madvise

To achieve this, previously introduced ksm_madvise_*() helpers
are used.
