It was intended that the threshold from one zone would be used but now
that you point it out, it would use the threshold for the smallest zone
in the node which is sub-optimal. I applied the patch below on top to
use the threshold from the largest zone. I considered using the sum of
all thresholds but feared it might allow too much per-cpu drift. It can
be switched to the sum if we find a case where vmstat updates are too
high.
