Subject[PATCH -mm] autonuma: Fix scan period updating
Date
The autonuma scan period should be increased (scanning is slowed down)
if the majority of the page accesses are shared with other processes.
But in current code, the scan period will be decreased (scanning is
speeded up) in that situation.

This patch fixes the code. And this has been tested via tracing the
scan period changing and /proc/vmstat numa_pte_updates counter when
running a multi-threaded memory accessing program (most memory
areas are accessed by multiple threads).

Fixes: 37ec97deb3a8 ("sched/numa: Slow down scan rate if shared faults dominate")
