Seems fair enough..

I don't understand the question; that commit is not about disabling numa
balancing, it's about avoiding pointless work and overhead. What's the
point of scanning memory if you're not going to be allowed to move it
anyway.

This is weird, why not just set F_MOF on the policy?

In fact, why wouldn't something like:

mbind(.mode=MPOL_BIND, .flags=MPOL_MF_LAZY);

work today? Afaict MF_LAZY will unconditionally result in M_MOF.

Did that want to be this instead? I don't think I follow the other
changes.
