SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] psi: Remove the redundant psi_task_tick
Hello Chengming,

Can you please update the patch name and the changelog to the new
version of the patch? It's not removing the redundant tick, it's
moving the reclaim detection from the timer tick to the task state
tracking machinery using the recently added ONCPU state.

This doesn't really work with the psi_task_switch() optimization. If
we switch between two tasks inside a leaf group, where one is memstall
and the other is not, we don't update the parents properly. So you
need another branch in there as well for checking memstall. At which
point the timer tick implementation is likely cheaper and simpler...
