Subject[RFC 3/7] mm: introduce MADV_COLD
Date
When a process expects no accesses to a certain memory range
for a long time, it could hint kernel that the pages can be
reclaimed instantly 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_COLD hint to madvise(2)
syscall. MADV_COLD can be used by a process to mark a memory range
as not expected to be used for a long time. The hint can help
kernel in deciding which pages to evict proactively.

Internally, it works via reclaiming memory in process context
the syscall is called. If the page is dirty but backing storage
is not synchronous device, the written page will be rotate back
into LRU's tail once the write is done so they will reclaim easily
when memory pressure happens. If backing storage is
synchrnous device(e.g., zram), hte page will be reclaimed instantly.
