Subject[PATCH 3/5] mm: Attempt to migrate page in lieu of discard
Date
If a memory node has a preferred migration path to demote cold pages,
attempt to move those inactive pages to that migration node before
reclaiming. This will better utilize available memory, provide a faster
tier than swapping or discarding, and allow such pages to be reused
immediately without IO to retrieve the data.

Some places we would like to see this used:

1. Persistent memory being as a slower, cheaper DRAM replacement
2. Remote memory-only "expansion" NUMA nodes
3. Resolving memory imbalances where one NUMA node is seeing more
allocation activity than another. This helps keep more recent
allocations closer to the CPUs on the node doing the allocating.
