could you try to run with the following patch on top of the previous
one? I do not think it will make a large change in your workload but
I think we need something like that so some testing under which is known
to make a high lowmem pressure would be really appreciated. If you have
more time to play with it then running with and without the patch with
mm_vmscan_direct_reclaim_{start,end} tracepoints enabled could tell us
whether it make any difference at all.

I would also appreciate if Mel and Johannes had a look at it. I am not
yet sure whether we need the same thing for anon/file balancing in
get_scan_count. I suspect we need but need to think more about that.

Thanks a lot again!
