Subject[PATCH v4 2/8] mm/vmscan: protect the workingset on anonymous LRU
Date
From: Joonsoo Kim <iamjoonsoo.kim@lge.com>

In current implementation, newly created or swap-in anonymous page
is started on active list. Growing active list results in rebalancing
active/inactive list so old pages on active list are demoted to inactive
list. Hence, the page on active list isn't protected at all.

Following is an example of this situation.

Assume that 50 hot pages on active list. Numbers denote the number of
pages on active/inactive list (active | inactive).

1. 50 hot pages on active list
50(h) | 0

2. workload: 50 newly created (used-once) pages
50(uo) | 50(h)

3. workload: another 50 newly created (used-once) pages
50(uo) | 50(uo), swap-out 50(h)

This patch tries to fix this issue.
Like as file LRU, newly created or swap-in anonymous pages will be
inserted to the inactive list. They are promoted to active list if
enough reference happens. This simple modification changes the above
example as following.

1. 50 hot pages on active list
50(h) | 0

2. workload: 50 newly created (used-once) pages
50(h) | 50(uo)

3. workload: another 50 newly created (used-once) pages
50(h) | 50(uo), swap-out 50(uo)

As you can see, hot pages on active list would be protected.

Note that, this implementation has a drawback that the page cannot
be promoted and will be swapped-out if re-access interval is greater than
the size of inactive list but less than the size of total(active+inactive).
To solve this potential issue, following patch will apply workingset
detection that is applied to file LRU some day before.
