Subject: [PATCH v17 1/7] mm: support madvise(MADV_FREE)

Linux doesn't have an ability to free pages lazy while other OS
already have been supported that named by madvise(MADV_FREE).

The gain is clear that kernel can discard freed pages rather than
swapping out or OOM if memory pressure happens.

Without memory pressure, freed pages would be reused by userspace
without another additional overhead(ex, page fault + allocation
+ zeroing).

How to work is following as.

When madvise syscall is called, VM clears dirty bit of ptes of
the range. If memory pressure happens, VM checks dirty bit of
page table and if it found still "clean", it means it's a
"lazyfree pages" so VM could discard the page instead of swapping out.
Once there was store operation for the page before VM peek a page
to reclaim, dirty bit is set so VM can swap out the page instead of
discarding.

Firstly, heavy users would be general allocators(ex, jemalloc,
tcmalloc and hope glibc supports it) and jemalloc/tcmalloc already
have supported the feature for other OS(ex, FreeBSD)
