SubjectRe: [PATCH v1 1/2] mm/page_idle: Add support for per-pid page_idle using virtual indexing

cumbersome: That's the fair tradeoff between idle page tracking and
clear_refs because idle page tracking could check even though the page
is not mapped.

error-prone: What's the error?

What you mean with error is this timing issue?
Why do you need to be accurate? IOW, accurate is always good but what's
the scale of the accuracy?

Ah, so the primary goal is to provide convinience interface and it would
help accurary, too. IOW, accuracy is not your main goal?

I'm not sure how it is painful to check it via pagemap for your goal
but not sure it's a good idea to create new ABI for just convinience.
I think that's library we have.

So the goal is to detect idle pages with idle memory tracking?
It couldn't work well because such idle pages could finally swap out and
lose every flags of the page descriptor which is working mechanism of
idle page tracking. It should have named "workingset page tracking",
not "idle page tracking".
