Subject[PATCH v2 08/14] mm/clear_page: add clear_page_uncached_threshold()
Date
Introduce clear_page_uncached_threshold which provides the threshold
above which clear_page_uncached() is used.

The ideal threshold value depends on the CPU architecture and where
the performance curves for cached and uncached stores intersect.
Typically this would depend on microarchitectural details and the LLC
size.
Here, we choose a 8MB (CLEAR_PAGE_UNCACHED_THRESHOLD) which seems
like a reasonably sized LLC.

Also define clear_page_prefer_uncached() which provides the user
interface to query this.
