The commit 9092c71bb724 ("mm: use sc->priority for slab shrink targets")
has broken up the relationship between sc->nr_scanned and slab pressure.
The sc->nr_scanned can't double slab pressure anymore.  So, it sounds no
sense to still keep sc->nr_scanned inc'ed.  Actually, it would prevent
from adding pressure on slab shrink since excessive sc->nr_scanned would
prevent from scan->priority raise.

The bonnie test doesn't show this would change the behavior of
slab shrinkers.

The slight increase of "/sec" without the patch would be caused by the
slight increase of CPU usage.

Since commit bd4c82c22c36 ("mm, THP, swap: delay splitting THP after
swapped out"), THP can be swapped out in a whole.  But, nr_reclaimed
and some other vm counters still get inc'ed by one even though a whole
THP (512 pages) gets swapped out.

This doesn't make too much sense to memory reclaim.  For example, direct
reclaim may just need reclaim SWAP_CLUSTER_MAX pages, reclaiming one THP
could fulfill it.  But, if nr_reclaimed is not increased correctly,
direct reclaim may just waste time to reclaim more pages,
SWAP_CLUSTER_MAX * 512 pages in worst case.

And, it may cause pgsteal_{kswapd|direct} is greater than
pgscan_{kswapd|direct}, like the below:

pgsteal_kswapd 122933
pgsteal_direct 26600225
pgscan_kswapd 174153
pgscan_direct 14678312

nr_reclaimed and nr_scanned must be fixed in parallel otherwise it would
break some page reclaim logic, e.g.

vmpressure: this looks at the scanned/reclaimed ratio so it won't
change semantics as long as scanned & reclaimed are fixed in parallel.

compaction/reclaim: compaction wants a certain number of physical pages
freed up before going back to compacting.

kswapd priority raising: kswapd raises priority if we scan fewer pages
than the reclaim target (which itself is obviously expressed in order-0
pages). As a result, kswapd can falsely raise its aggressiveness even
when it's making great progress.

Other than nr_scanned and nr_reclaimed, some other counters, e.g.
pgactivate, nr_skipped, nr_ref_keep and nr_unmap_fail need to be fixed
too since they are user visible via cgroup, /proc/vmstat or trace
points, otherwise they would be underreported.

When isolating pages from LRUs, nr_taken has been accounted in base
page, but nr_scanned and nr_skipped are still accounted in THP.  It
doesn't make too much sense too since this may cause trace point
underreport the numbers as well.

So accounting those counters in base page instead of accounting THP as
one page.

nr_dirty, nr_unqueued_dirty, nr_congested and nr_writeback are used by
file cache, so they are not impacted by THP swap.

This change may result in lower steal/scan ratio in some cases since
THP may get split during page reclaim, then a part of tail pages get
reclaimed instead of the whole 512 pages, but nr_scanned is accounted
by 512, particularly for direct reclaim.  But, this should be not a
significant issue.

Hi Yang,

I might be misunderstanding this, but did you mean "prevent from scan-
priority decreasing"?
I guess we are talking about balance_pgdat(), and in case
kswapd_shrink_node() returns true (it means we have scanned more than
we had to reclaim), raise_priority becomes false, and this does not let
sc->priority to be decreased, which has the impact that less pages will
 be reclaimed the next round.

Sorry for bugging here, I just wanted to see if I got this right.

BTW, for the scan priority, the smaller number the higher priority. So, 
either "raise" or "decrease" sounds correct. "raise" means the real 
priority, "decrease" means the number itself.
