This is correct.

But this isn't. It IS the task tick that makes it so. The state change
tracking counts MEMSTALL tasks and ONCPU tasks, but it doesn't check
whether the ONCPU task is the MEMSTALL one.

It would be possible to incorporate that into psi_task_switch(), but
you have to be careful with the branches because that path is often
hotter than the timer tick.

This patch by itself breaks page reclaim detection, so NAK.
