Subject[PATCH v2 11/19] sched/numa: Restrict migrating in parallel to the same node.
Date
Since task migration under numa balancing can happen in parallel, more
than one task might choose to move to the same node at the same time.
This can cause load imbalances at the node level.

The problem is more likely if there are more cores per node or more
nodes in system.

Use a per-node variable to indicate if task migration
to the node under numa balance is currently active.
This per-node variable will not track swapping of tasks.
