Subject[PATCH] mm: add config for readahead window
Date
From: Wei Wang <wvw@google.com>

Change VM_MAX_READAHEAD value from the default 128KB to a configurable
value. This will allow the readahead window to grow to a maximum size
bigger than 128KB during boot, which could benefit to sequential read
throughput and thus boot performance.
