Subject[PATCH -mm -v4 4/5] mm, swap: Add sysfs interface for VMA based swap readahead
Date
From: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com>

The sysfs interface to control the VMA based swap readahead is added
as follow,

/sys/kernel/mm/swap/vma_ra_enabled

Enable the VMA based swap readahead algorithm, or use the original
global swap readahead algorithm.

/sys/kernel/mm/swap/vma_ra_max_order

Set the max order of the readahead window size for the VMA based swap
readahead algorithm.

The corresponding ABI documentation is added too.

+Description: Enable/disable VMA based swap readahead.
+
+ If set to true, the VMA based swap readahead algorithm
+ will be used for swappable anonymous pages mapped in a
+ VMA, and the global swap readahead algorithm will be
+ still used for tmpfs etc. other users. If set to
+ false, the global swap readahead algorithm will be
+ used for all swappable pages.

+Description: The max readahead size in order for VMA based swap readahead
+
+ VMA based swap readahead algorithm will readahead at
+ most 1 << max_order pages for each readahead. The
+ real readahead size for each readahead will be scaled
+ according to the estimation algorithm.
