Subject[PATCH 12/28] readahead: state based method - aging accounting
Collect info about the global available memory and its consumption speed.
The data are used by the stateful method to estimate the thrashing threshold.

They are the decisive factor of the correctness/accuracy of the resulting
read-ahead size.

The accountings are done on a per-node basis. On NUMA systems, it works for
the two common real-world schemes:
- the reader process allocates caches in a node affined manner;
- the reader process allocates caches _balancely_ from a set of nodes.

DESC
Apply type enum zone_type (readahead)
EDESC
From: Christoph Lameter <clameter@sgi.com>

After we have done this we can now do some typing cleanup.

The memory policy layer keeps a policy_zone that specifies
the zone that gets memory policies applied. This variable
can now be of type enum zone_type.

The check_highest_zone function and the build_zonelists funnctionm must
then also take a enum zone_type parameter.

Plus there are a number of loops over zones that also should use
zone_type.

We run into some troubles at some points with functions that need a
zone_type variable to become -1. Fix that up.
