Subject: [RFC v15.1 1/8] mm/damon/core: Account age of target regions

From: SeongJae Park <sjpark@...zon.de>

DAMON can be used for data access pattern aware memory management
optimizations.  For that, users should run DAMON, read the monitoring
results, analyze it, plan a new memory management scheme, and apply the
new scheme by themselves.  It would not be too hard, but still require
some level of effort.  For complicated cases, this effort is inevitable.

That said, in many cases, users would simply want to apply an actions to
a memory region of a specific size having a specific access frequency
for a specific time.  For example, "page out a memory region larger than
100 MiB but having a low access frequency more than 10 minutes", or "Use
THP for a memory region larger than 2 MiB having a high access frequency
for more than 2 seconds".

For such optimizations, users will need to first account the age of each
region themselves.  To reduce such efforts, this commit implements a
simple age account of each region in DAMON.  For each aggregation step,
DAMON compares the access frequency with that from last aggregation and
reset the age of the region if the change is significant.  Else, the age
is incremented.  Also, in case of the merge of regions, the region
size-weighted average of the ages is set as the age of merged new
region.
