Beyond the scope of this patch, but at some point this probably needs
to be even more fine grained. With large number of cores/threads in
each socket a "zone" is actually shared by quite a large number
of CPUs now and this can cause problems.

Again I object to the magic numbers ...

And here.

Overall it seems good, but I have not read all the shrinker callback
changes in all subsystems.
