Subject[PATCH 1/6] Use zonelists instead of zones when direct reclaiming pages
Date

The allocator deals with zonelists which indicate the order in which zones
should be targeted for an allocation. Similarly, direct reclaim of pages
iterates over an array of zones. For consistency, this patch converts direct
reclaim to use a zonelist. No functionality is changed by this patch. This
simplifies zonelist iterators in the next patch.
