Johannes Weiner has suggested:
"So here is a crazy idea that may be worth exploring:

Right now, pgdat->lru_lock protects both PageLRU *and* the lruvec's
linked list.

Can we make PageLRU atomic and use it to stabilize the lru_lock
instead, and then use the lru_lock only serialize list operations?
..."

Yes, this patch is doing so on  __isolate_lru_page which is the core
page isolation func in compaction and shrinking path.
With this patch, the compaction will only deal the PageLRU set and now
isolated pages to skip the just alloced page which no LRU bit. And the
isolation could exclusive the other isolations in memcg move_account,
page migrations and thp split_huge_page.

As a side effect, PageLRU may be cleared during shrink_inactive_list
path for isolation reason. If so, we can skip that page.
