memcg: avoid THP split in task migration
Naoya Horiguchi [Wed, 21 Mar 2012 23:34:28 +0000 (16:34 -0700)]
Currently we can't do task migration among memory cgroups without THP
split, which means processes heavily using THP experience large overhead
in task migration.  This patch introduces the code for moving charge of
THP and makes THP more valuable.
