      It's used by MGLRU. In fact, it's been holding up the MGLRU merge for a couple releases, before now.

        I have been using it for a long time (over a year). It makes a HUGE difference on my 16GB laptop (Thinkpad x395). Without, web browser gets stuck for seconds at a time every now and again. With, issue is gone.

        I'm glad it's finally merged. The next big thing within Linux I am hoping will finally get merged soon is the realtime patchset.
