[PATCH 5.0 061/137] mm: fix inactive list balancing between NUMA nodes and cgroups




[ Upstream commit 3b991208b897f52507168374033771a984b947b1 ]

During !CONFIG_CGROUP reclaim, we expand the inactive list size if it's
thrashing on the node that is about to be reclaimed.  But when cgroups
are enabled, we suddenly ignore the node scope and use the cgroup scope
only.  The result is that pressure bleeds between NUMA nodes depending
on whether cgroups are merely compiled into Linux.  This behavioral
difference is unexpected and undesirable.

When the refault adaptivity of the inactive list was first introduced,
there were no statistics at the lruvec level - the intersection of node
and memcg - so it was better than nothing.

But now that we have that infrastructure, use lruvec_page_state() to
make the list balancing decision always NUMA aware.
