Subject[RFC 1/7] mm: introduce MADV_COOL
Date
When a process expects no accesses to a certain memory range
it could hint kernel that the pages can be reclaimed
when memory pressure happens but data should be preserved
for future use. This could reduce workingset eviction so it
ends up increasing performance.

This patch introduces the new MADV_COOL hint to madvise(2)
syscall. MADV_COOL can be used by a process to mark a memory range
as not expected to be used in the near future. The hint can help
kernel in deciding which pages to evict early during memory
pressure.

Internally, it works via deactivating memory from active list to
inactive's head so when the memory pressure happens, they will be
reclaimed earlier than other active pages unless there is no
access until the time.

* v1r2
* use clear_page_young in deactivate_page - joelaf

* v1r1
* Revise the description - surenb
* Renaming from MADV_WARM to MADV_COOL - surenb
