The watermark flags should probably be members of an anonymous enum since
they're being used as an index into an array. If another watermark were
ever to be added it would require a value of 0x03, for instance.

enum {
ALLOC_WMARK_MIN,
ALLOC_WMARK_LOW,
ALLOC_WMARK_HIGH,

ALLOC_WMARK_MASK = 0xf /* no more than 16 possible watermarks */
};

This eliminates ALLOC_NO_WATERMARKS and the caller that uses it would
simply pass 0.

This would become

if (alloc_flags & ALLOC_WMARK_MASK)
