memcg: allocate all page_cgroup at boot
Allocate all page_cgroup at boot and remove page_cgroup poitner from struct page. This patch adds an interface as struct page_cgroup *lookup_page_cgroup(struct page*) All FLATMEM/DISCONTIGMEM/SPARSEMEM and MEMORY_HOTPLUG is supported. Remove page_cgroup pointer reduces the amount of memory by - 4 bytes per PAGE_SIZE. - 8 bytes per PAGE_SIZE if memory controller is disabled. (even if configured.) On usual 8GB x86-32 server, this saves 8MB of NORMAL_ZONE memory. On my x86-64 server with 48GB of memory, this saves 96MB of memory. I think this reduction makes sense. By pre-allocation, kmalloc/kfree in charge/uncharge are removed. This means - we're not necessary to be afraid of kmalloc faiulre. (this can happen because of gfp_mask type.) - we can avoid calling kmalloc/kfree. - we can avoid allocating tons of small objects which can be fragmented. - we can know what amount of memory will be used for this extra-lru handling. I added printk message as "allocated %ld bytes of page_cgroup" "please try cgroup_disable=memory option if you don't want" maybe enough informative for users.
