Subject: [patch 00/12] mm: memcontrol: naturalize charge lifetime v3

Hi,

this is v3 of the memcg charge naturalization series.  Changes since
v2 include:

o make THP charges use __GFP_NORETRY to prevent excessive reclaim (Michal)
o simplify move precharging while in the area
o add acks & rebase to v3.16-rc1

These patches rework memcg charge lifetime to integrate more naturally
with the lifetime of user pages.  This drastically simplifies the code
and reduces charging and uncharging overhead.  The most expensive part
of charging and uncharging is the page_cgroup bit spinlock, which is
removed entirely after this series.

Here are the top-10 profile entries of a stress test that reads a 128G
sparse file on a freshly booted box, without even a dedicated cgroup
(i.e. executing in the root memcg).  Before:

    15.36%              cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] copy_user_generic_string                  
    13.31%              cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] memset                                    
    11.48%              cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] do_mpage_readpage                         
     4.23%              cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] get_page_from_freelist                    
     2.38%              cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] put_page                                  
     2.32%              cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] __mem_cgroup_commit_charge                
     2.18%          kswapd0  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] __mem_cgroup_uncharge_common              
     1.92%          kswapd0  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] shrink_page_list                          
     1.86%              cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] __radix_tree_lookup                       
     1.62%              cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] __pagevec_lru_add_fn                      

After:

    15.67%           cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] copy_user_generic_string                  
    13.48%           cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] memset                                    
    11.42%           cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] do_mpage_readpage                         
     3.98%           cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] get_page_from_freelist                    
     2.46%           cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] put_page                                  
     2.13%       kswapd0  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] shrink_page_list                          
     1.88%           cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] __radix_tree_lookup                       
     1.67%           cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] __pagevec_lru_add_fn                      
     1.39%       kswapd0  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] free_pcppages_bulk                        
     1.30%           cat  [kernel.kallsyms]   [k] kfree                                     

As you can see, the memcg footprint has shrunk quite a bit.
