Commit Message

Huang\, Ying Dec. 2, 2020, 8:42 a.m. UTC
A new API: numa_set_membind_balancing() is added to libnuma.  It is
same as numa_set_membind() except that the Linux kernel NUMA balancing
will be enabled for the task if the feature is supported by the
kernel.

At the same time, a new option: --balancing (-b) is added to numactl.
Which can be used before the memory policy options in the command
line.  With it, the Linux kernel NUMA balancing will be enabled for
the process if the feature is supported by the kernel.

--balancing is a bit vague, maybe --balance-bind? The intent is to hint
that it's specific to MPOL_BIND at this time.
