min_unmapped_ratio is there to guarantee that zone reclaim does not
reclaim all unmapped pages.

What you want here is a max_unmapped_ratio.

Hmmmm. Okay that means background reclaim does it. If so then we also want
zone reclaim to be able to work in the background I think.
max_unmapped_ratio could also be useful to the zone reclaim logic.
