Lets split into 4 modes.
More Local and Private Page Accesses:
We definitely want to scan slowly i.e increase the scan window.

More Local and Shared Page Accesses:
We still want to scan slowly because we have consolidated and there is no
point in scanning faster. So scan slowly + increase the scan window.
(Do remember access on any active node counts as local!!!)

More Remote + Private page Accesses:
Most likely the Private accesses are going to be local accesses.

In the unlikely event of the private accesses not being local, we should
scan faster so that the memory and task consolidates.

More Remote + Shared page Accesses: This means the workload has not
consolidated and needs to scan faster. So we need to scan faster.

So I would think we should go back to before 37ec97deb3a8.

i.e

int slot = lr_ratio - NUMA_PERIOD_THRESHOLD;

if (!slot)
slot = 1;
diff = slot * period_slot;


No?

With this change, I would expect that with Shared page accesses,
consolidation to take a hit.

Comment wise this make sense.
