    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.
