Another question.

This means for all VMAs that are mbind() without MPOL_MF_LAZY and tasks
which binds memory via set_mempolicy(), we will not try to optimize
their page placement among the bound nodes even if sysctl knob
kernel.numa_balancing is enabled.

Is this the intended behavior? Although we enable AutoNUMA globally, we
will not try to use it in any places if possible. In some places, it
needs to be enabled again.

Best Regards,
Huang, Ying
