They have different meaning, since now it's just the accumulation of
local/remote page access counter, we have to increasing the sample
period into the maximum NUMA balancing scan period, to my system it's
1 minute.

We still get useful information from the increments, for example:
local 100 remote 1000 <-- bad locality in last period
local 0 remote 0 <-- no scan or NUMA PF happened in last period
local 100 remote 0 <-- good locality but not much PF happened

So I won't say they are matched, they tell the story in different way :-P

This is try to avoid hierarchy update in each PF, accumulate the counter
and update together should cost less.

Besides, as they won't be reset now, maybe we could expose them too.

The hierarchy update can't be saved, and this is a good place where we
already holding rq lock, iterate cfs_rq in hierarchy for current task.
