Subject: [PATCH v2] mm/vmscan.c: only adjust related kswapd cpu affinity when online cpu

When onlining a cpu, kswapd_cpu_online() is called to adjust kswapd cpu

Current routine does like this:

  a) Iterate all the numa node
  b) Adjust cpu affinity when node has an online cpu

For a) this is not necessary, since the particular online cpu belongs to
a particular numa node. So it is not necessary to iterate on every nodes
on the system. This new onlined cpu just affect kswapd cpu affinity of
this particular node.

For b) several cpumask operation is used to check whether the node has
an online CPU. Since at this point we are sure one of our CPU onlined,
we can set the cpu affinity directly to current cpumask_of_node().

This patch simplifies the logic by set cpu affinity of the affected

  * rephrase the changelog
