Subject[RFC PATCH 1/2] mm/damon: Put more information in kdamond thread name
Date
From: SeongJae Park <sjpark@amazon.de>

While multiple kdamond threads can run, it is hard to distinguish each
thread as all kdamond threads has same name, 'kdamond'. This commit
puts more information including if it is spawned from the user context
(via the debugfs interface) and for what context it is running. The
format of the name is:

kdamond.<current pid>.<# of context>

If it is not spawned from the user context, <current pid> becomes 0.
Using this information, for example, the user space could easily account
CPU usage of DAMON that they requested in fine granularity.
