parentMemory controller: add switch to control what type of pages to limit (diff)
Memory controller: make page_referenced() cgroup aware
Make page_referenced() cgroup aware. Without this patch, page_referenced() can cause a page to be skipped while reclaiming pages. This patch ensures that other cgroups do not hold pages in a particular cgroup hostage. It is required to ensure that shared pages are freed from a cgroup when they are not actively referenced from the cgroup that brought them in Signed-off-by: Balbir Singh <balbir@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Cc: Pavel Emelianov <xemul@openvz.org> Cc: Paul Menage <menage@google.com> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: "Eric W.
