Subject[PATCH 0/2] Disable zone_reclaim_mode by default v2
Changelog since v1
o topology comment updates

When it was introduced, zone_reclaim_mode made sense as NUMA distances
punished and workloads were generally partitioned to fit into a NUMA
node. NUMA machines are now common but few of the workloads are NUMA-aware
and it's routine to see major performance due to zone_reclaim_mode being
enabled but relatively few can identify the problem.

Those that require zone_reclaim_mode are likely to be able to detect when
it needs to be enabled and tune appropriately so lets have a sensible
default for the bulk of users.
