We talked about this before but I would at least suggest that you not
reset the scan if moving to the preferred node or if the node movement
has nothing to do with the preferred nid. e.g.

/*
* Ignore if the migration is not changing node, if it is migrating to
* the preferred node or moving between two nodes that are not preferred
*/

if (p->numa_faults) {
int src_nid = cpu_to_node(task_cpu(p));
int dst_nid = cpu_to_node(new_cpu);

if (src_nid == dst_nid || dst_nid == p->numa_preferred_nid ||
(p->numa_preferred_nid != -1 && src_nid != p->numa_preferred_nid))
return;

p->numa_scan_period = task_scan_start(p);

Note too that the next scan can be an arbitrary amount of time in the
future. Consider as an alternative to schedule an immediate scan instead
of adjusting the rate with

p->mm->numa_next_scan = jiffies;

That might be less harmful in terms of overhead while still collecting
some data in the short-term.
