Subject[PATCH RFC v2 3/4] mm/ksm: introduce force_madvise knob
Date
Present a new sysfs knob to mark task's anonymous memory as mergeable.

To force merging task's VMAs, its PID is echoed in a write-only file:

# echo PID > /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/force_madvise

Force unmerging is done similarly, but with "minus" sign:

# echo -PID > /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/force_madvise

"0" or "-0" can be used to control the current task.

To achieve this, previously introduced ksm_enter()/ksm_leave() helpers
are used in the "store" handler.
