    The semantics of any watermark is to trigger events to happen at a
    specific level, so they should be static with respect to a frame of
    reference (which in the VM case is the min watermark with respect to the
    size of the zone). If you're going to adjust the min watermark, it's then
    _mandatory_ to adjust the others to that frame of reference, you shouldn't
    need to tune them independently.

    The problem that Satoru is reporting probably has nothing to do with the
    watermarks themselves but probably requires more aggressive action by
    kswapd and/or memory compaction.
