numa_balancing_settle_count is how many scan periods must complete before
the schedule balancer stops pushing the task towards a preferred node. This
gives the scheduler a chance to place the task on an alternative node if the
preferred node is overloaded.
numa_balancing_migrate_deferred is how many page migrations get skipped
unconditionally, after a page migration is skipped because a page is shared
