Subject[PATCH] mm/page_alloc: don't reserve ZONE_HIGHMEM for ZONE_MOVABLE request
Date
From: Joonsoo Kim <iamjoonsoo.kim@lge.com>

Freepage on ZONE_HIGHMEM doesn't work for kernel memory so it's not that
important to reserve. When ZONE_MOVABLE is used, this problem would
theorectically cause to decrease usable memory for GFP_HIGHUSER_MOVABLE
allocation request which is mainly used for page cache and anon page
allocation. So, fix it by setting 0 to
sysctl_lowmem_reserve_ratio[ZONE_HIGHMEM].

And, defining sysctl_lowmem_reserve_ratio array by MAX_NR_ZONES - 1 size
makes code complex. For example, if there is highmem system, following
reserve ratio is activated for *NORMAL ZONE* which would be easyily
misleading people.

#ifdef CONFIG_HIGHMEM
32
#endif

This patch also fix this situation by defining sysctl_lowmem_reserve_ratio
array by MAX_NR_ZONES and place "#ifdef" to right place.
