Currently, THP are counted as single pages until they are split right
before being swapped out. However, at that point the VM is already in
the middle of reclaim, and adjusting the LRU balance then is useless.

Always account THP by the number of basepages, and remove the fixup
from the splitting path.

This is now already in mm as part of the "mm: balance LRU lists based
on relative thrashing" series that I sent out last week and where it
was originally from.

Yup.  I hope [1/3] and [2/3] weren't urgent?  Due to a horrid merge
mismatchmishmashmess I've staged them behind lots of other things,
notably

thp/khugepaged improvements and CoW semantics
http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20200416160026.16538-1-kirill.shutemov@linux.intel.com

and mm: memcontrol: charge swapin pages on instantiation
http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20200508183105.225460-1-hannes@cmpxchg.org

and mm: balance LRU lists based on relative thrashing
http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20200520232525.798933-1-hannes@cmpxchg.org
