From: Madhavan Srinivasan
Date: Fri Apr 04 2014 - 02:27:45 EST

Kirill A. Shutemov with faultaround patchset introduced
vm_ops->map_pages() for mapping easy accessible pages around
fault address in hope to reduce number of minor page faults.

This patchset creates infrastructure to move the FAULT_AROUND_ORDER
to arch/ using Kconfig. This will enable architecture maintainers
to decide on suitable FAULT_AROUND_ORDER value based on
performance data for that architecture. First patch also adds
FAULT_AROUND_ORDER Kconfig element for X86. Second patch list
out the performance numbers for powerpc (platform pseries) and
adds FAULT_AROUND_ORDER Kconfig element for powerpc.

V2 Changes:
Created Kconfig parameter for FAULT_AROUND_ORDER
Added check in do_read_fault to handle FAULT_AROUND_ORDER value of 0
Made changes in commit messages.
