Subject[PATCH 11/15] mm: trigger page reclaim in alloc_contig_range() to stabilize watermarks
alloc_contig_range() performs memory allocation so it also should keep
track on keeping the correct level of memory watermarks. This commit adds
a call to *_slowpath style reclaim to grab enough pages to make sure that
the final collection of contiguous pages from freelists will not starve
the system.
