Johannes Weiner - May 7, 2018, 9:01 p.m.
Delay accounting already measures the time a task spends in direct
reclaim and waiting for swapin, but in low memory situations tasks
spend can spend a significant amount of their time waiting on
thrashing page cache. This isn't tracked right now.

To know the full impact of memory contention on an individual task,
measure the delay when waiting for a recently evicted active cache
page to read back into memory.

Also update tools/accounting/getdelays.c:

     [hannes@computer accounting]$ sudo ./getdelays -d -p 1
     print delayacct stats ON
     PID     1

     CPU             count     real total  virtual total    delay total  delay average
