From: SeongJae Park <sjpark@amazon.de>

In many cases, users might use DAMON for simple data access aware
memory management optimizations such as applying an operation scheme to
a memory region of a specific size having a specific access frequency
for a specific time.  For example, "page out a memory region larger than
100 MiB but having a low access frequency more than 10 minutes", or "Use
THP for a memory region larger than 2 MiB having a high access frequency
for more than 2 seconds".

Most simple form of the solution would be doing offline data access
pattern profiling using DAMON and modifying the application source code
or system configuration based on the profiling results.  Or, developing
a daemon constructed with two modules (one for access monitoring and the
other for applying memory management actions via mlock(), madvise(),
sysctl, etc) is imaginable.

To minimize users from spending their time for implementation of such
simple data access monitoring-based operation schemes, this commit makes
DAMON to handle such schemes directly.  With this commit, users can
simply specify their desired schemes to DAMON.  Then, DAMON will
automatically apply the schemes to the the user-specified target
processes.

Each of the schemes is composed with conditions for filtering of the
target memory regions and desired memory management action for the
target.  Specifically, the format is::

    <min/max size> <min/max access frequency> <min/max age> <action>

The filtering conditions are size of memory region, number of accesses
to the region monitored by DAMON, and the age of the region.  The age of
region is incremented periodically but reset when its addresses or
access frequency has significantly changed or the action of a scheme was
applied.  For the action, current implementation supports only a few of
madvise() hints, ``MADV_WILLNEED``, ``MADV_COLD``, ``MADV_PAGEOUT``,
``MADV_HUGEPAGE``, and ``MADV_NOHUGEPAGE``.
