My previous version (one month ago) does that. In this set, I tried to use
unified approach for all CONFIG_NUMA/HIGHMEM/flat ones.

Hmm, How about adding following kind of patch after this

#define policy_zone (lowmem_zone + 1)

and remove policy_zone ? I think the name of "policy_zone" implies
"this is for mempolicy, NUMA" and don't think good name for generic use.


Thanks,
