This is result from ftrace graph, it maybe prove that the deep call path leads to low performance.

And when increase reclaiming page in try_to_free_mem_cgroup_pages, it can reduce calling of shrink_slab, which save times, in my cases, page caches occupy most memory, slab is little, but shrink_slab will be called everytime
