  Register a shrinker to control the amount of
memory that is used in tracking hot regions - if we are throwing
inodes out of memory due to memory pressure, we most definitely are
going to need to reduce the amount of memory the tracking code is
using, even if it means losing useful information (i.e. the shrinker
accelerates the aging process).
