mm: vmscan: convert global reclaim to per-memcg LRU lists
Johannes Weiner [Fri, 13 Jan 2012 01:18:06 +0000 (17:18 -0800)]
The global per-zone LRU lists are about to go away on memcg-enabled
kernels, global reclaim must be able to find its pages on the per-memcg
LRU lists.

Since the LRU pages of a zone are distributed over all existing memory
cgroups, a scan target for a zone is complete when all memory cgroups
are scanned for their proportional share of a zone's memory.

The forced scanning of small scan targets from kswapd is limited to
zones marked unreclaimable, otherwise kswapd can quickly overreclaim by
force-scanning the LRU lists of multiple memory cgroups.
