Subject[RFC][PATCH 1/8] mm/numa: node demotion data structure and lookup
From
Date

From: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@linux.intel.com>

Prepare for the kernel to auto-migrate pages to other memory nodes
with a user defined node migration table. This allows creating single
migration target for each NUMA node to enable the kernel to do NUMA
page migrations instead of simply reclaiming colder pages. A node
with no target is a "terminal node", so reclaim acts normally there.
The migration target does not fundamentally _need_ to be a single node,
but this implementation starts there to limit complexity.

If you consider the migration path as a graph, cycles (loops) in the
graph are disallowed. This avoids wasting resources by constantly
migrating (A->B, B->A, A->B ...). The expectation is that cycles will
never be allowed.
