The patch is tested in our android system with 2GB ram. The case
mainly focus on the smooth slide of pictures on a gallery, which used
to stall on the direct reclaim for over several hundred
millionseconds. By further debugging, we find that the direct reclaim
spend most of time to reclaim pages on its own with softlimit set to
40960KB. I add a ftrace event to verify that the patch can help
escaping such scenario. Furthermore, we also measured the major fault
of this process(by dumpsys of android). The result is the patch can
help to reduce 20% of the major fault during the test.
