[-mm PATCH 9/9] Memory controller make page_referenced() container aware (v5)

Make page_referenced() container aware. Without this patch, page_referenced()
can cause a page to be skipped while reclaiming pages. This patch
ensures that other containers do not hold pages in a particular container
hostage. It is required to ensure that shared pages are freed from a container
when they are not actively referenced from the container that brought
them in
