Hi Kame, Johannes,

Sorry for getting into this thread late and here are some comments:

There are few patches that we've been working on which could change
the memcg reclaim path quite bit. I wonder if they have chance to be
merged later, this patch might need to be adjusted accordingly as
well. If the ABI needs to be changed, that would be hard.

There is a patch Andrew (abrestic@) has been testing which adds the
same memory.vmscan_stat, but based on some page reclaim patches.
(Mainly the memcg-aware global reclaim from Johannes ). And it does
adjust to the hierarchical reclaim change as Johannes mentioned.

So, may I suggest us to hold on this patch for now? while the other
page reclaim changes being settled, we can then add it in.
