[PATCH 12/39] autonuma: add page structure fields

From: Andrea Arcangeli
Date: Mon Mar 26 2012 - 14:28:25 EST

On 64bit archs, 20 bytes are used for async memory migration (specific
to the knuma_migrated per-node threads), and 4 bytes are used for the
thread NUMA false sharing detection logic.

This is a bad implementation due lack of time to do a proper one.

These AutoNUMA new fields must be moved to the pgdat like memcg
does. So that they're only allocated at boot time if the kernel is
booted on NUMA hardware. And so that they're not allocated even if
booted on NUMA hardware if "noautonuma" is passed as boot parameter to
the kernel.
