Subject[PATCH v2 0/4] per-cgroup numa suite
During our torturing on numa stuff, we found problems like:

* missing per-cgroup information about the per-node execution status
* missing per-cgroup information about the numa locality

That is when we have a cpu cgroup running with bunch of tasks, no good
way to tell how it's tasks are dealing with numa.

The first two patches are trying to complete the missing pieces, but
more problems appeared after monitoring these status:

* tasks not always running on the preferred numa node
* tasks from same cgroup running on different nodes

The task numa group handler will always check if tasks are sharing pages
and try to pack them into a single numa group, so they will have chance to
settle down on the same node, but this failed in some cases:

* workloads share page caches rather than share mappings
* workloads got too many wakeup across nodes

Since page caches are not traced by numa balancing, there are no way to
realize such kind of relationship, and when there are too many wakeup,
task will be drag from the preferred node and then migrate back by numa
balancing, repeatedly.

Here the third patch try to address the first issue, we could now give hint
to kernel about the relationship of tasks, and pack them into single numa

And the forth patch introduced numa cling, which try to address the wakup
issue, now we try to make task stay on the preferred node on wakeup in fast
path, in order to address the unbalancing risk, we monitoring the numa
migration failure ratio, and pause numa cling when it reach the specified

Since v1:
* move statistics from memory cgroup into cpu group
* statistics now accounting in hierarchical way
* locality now accounted into 8 regions equally
* numa cling no longer override select_idle_sibling, instead we
prevent numa swap migration with tasks cling to dst-node, also
prevent wake affine to drag tasks away which already cling to
* other refine on comments and names

Michael Wang (4):
v2 numa: introduce per-cgroup numa balancing locality statistic
v2 numa: append per-node execution time in cpu.numa_stat
v2 numa: introduce numa group per task group
v4 numa: introduce numa cling feature
