Subject[55/73] mm: vmstat: use a single setter function and callback for adjusting percpu thresholds
2.6.37-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Mel Gorman <mel@csn.ul.ie>

commit b44129b30652c8771db2265939bb8b463724043d upstream.

reduce_pgdat_percpu_threshold() and restore_pgdat_percpu_threshold() exist
to adjust the per-cpu vmstat thresholds while kswapd is awake to avoid
errors due to counter drift. The functions duplicate some code so this
patch replaces them with a single set_pgdat_percpu_threshold() that takes
a callback function to calculate the desired threshold as a parameter.
