Mathieu, this patch is too large and have multiple change.
memory subsystem have some feature and is developed by many people.

So, nobody can ack it.
Could you split to more small patch?

and, this patch description is very poor.

I guess

> mm_filemap_wait_end
> mm_filemap_wait_start
for latency statics by lock_page delay

if so, we should know who have locking.


> mm_handle_fault_entry
> mm_handle_fault_exit
??
please explain.

> mm_page_alloc
> mm_page_free
for memory leak track
for memory eater sort out
etc..

> mm_huge_page_alloc
> mm_huge_page_free
ditto
(but, huge page is developed by another person against normal page alloc
so, patch separating is better)

> mm_swap_file_close
> mm_swap_file_open
??
What do you suppose usage?

> mm_swap_in
> mm_swap_out
for swap usage statics
for swap delay accounting


and, some tracepoint is putted on performance critical function.
So, you should write performance result in patch description.

looks good to me.

somebody want get swapin delaying statics.
(see delayacct_set_flag() and delayacct_clear_flag())

if swap cache exist, swapin can end very faster.
otherwise, spend very long time.

mm or vma passing is better?
otherwise, adress is ambiguity.

no argument?
if two page fault happend in parallel, how do you sort out this two fault?

and, IMHO res variable is very important.
because it is OOM related.
many MM trouble shooting is worked for OOM related.

please pass current task.
I guess somebody need memory allocation tracking.

this tracepoint probe swapout starting, right.
So, Why you don't probe swapout end?

this tracepoint probe to HugePages_Free change, right?
Why you don't probe HugePages_Total and HugePages_Rsvd change?

Why you choose this point?
and why you don't pass pathname? (you pass it in sys_swapon())

IMHO try_to_unuse cause many memory activity and spend many time and
often cause oom-killer.

I think this point log is needed by somebody.
