Subject: [PATCH -V8 11/21] swap: Add sysfs interface to configure THP swapin

Swapin a THP as a whole isn't desirable in some situations.  For
example, for completely random access pattern, swapin a THP in one
piece will inflate the reading greatly.  So a sysfs interface:
/sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/swapin_enabled is added to
configure it.  Three options as follow are provided,

- always: THP swapin will be enabled always

- madvise: THP swapin will be enabled only for VMA with VM_HUGEPAGE
  flag set.

- never: THP swapin will be disabled always

The default configuration is: madvise.

During page fault, if a PMD swap mapping is found and THP swapin is
disabled, the huge swap cluster and the PMD swap mapping will be split
and fallback to normal page swapin.

+Transparent hugepage may be swapout and swapin in one piece without
+splitting.  This will improve the utility of transparent hugepage but
+may inflate the read/write too.  So whether to enable swapin
+transparent hugepage in one piece can be configured as follow.
+
+	echo always >/sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/swapin_enabled
+	echo madvise >/sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/swapin_enabled
+	echo never >/sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/swapin_enabled
+
+always
+	Attempt to allocate a transparent huge page and read it from
+	swap space in one piece every time.
+
+never
+	Always split the swap space and PMD swap mapping and swapin
+	the fault normal page during swapin.
+
+madvise
+	Only swapin the transparent huge page in one piece for
+	MADV_HUGEPAGE madvise regions.
+
 khugepaged will be automatically started when
 transparent_hugepage/enabled is set to "always" or "madvise, and it'll
 be automatically shutdown if it's set to "never".
