Subject: [PATCH] mm: move swap-in anonymous page into active list
Date: Fri, 29 Jul 2016 12:25:40 +0900
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Every swap-in anonymous page starts from inactive lru list's head.
It should be activated unconditionally when VM decide to reclaim
because page table entry for the page always usually has marked
accessed bit. Thus, their window size for getting a new referece
is 2 * NR_inactive + NR_active while others is NR_active + NR_active.

It's not fair that it has more chance to be referenced compared
to other newly allocated page which starts from active lru list's
