It might be better to discuss in other thread but if you mention new
interface here again, I will discuss it here.

We are creating new ABI in here so I want to ask question in here.

Did you consier to use /sys/block/xxx/queue/read_ahead_kb for the
swap readahead knob? Reusing such common/consistent knob would be better
than adding new separate konb.

In here, could you point out kindly somewhere where describes two
readahead algorithm in the system?

I don't mean we should explain how it works. Rather than, there are
two parallel algorithm in swap readahead.

Anonymous memory works based on VMA while shm works based on physical
block. There are working separately on parallel. Each of knobs are
vma_ra_max_order and page-cluster, blah, blah.
