Subject[PATCH 2/7] khugepaged: Do not stop collapse if less than half PTEs are referenced
Date
__collapse_huge_page_swapin() check number of referenced PTE to decide
if the memory range is hot enough to justify swapin.

The problem is that it stops collapse altogether if there's not enough
refereced pages, not only swappingin.
