Subject[PATCH] mm:Add watermark slope for high mark
Date
When tuning the watermark_scale_factor to reduce stalls and compactions
the high mark is also changed, it changed a bit too much. So this
patch introduces a slope that can reduce this overhead a bit, or
increase it if needed.

+This factor is high mark for watermark_scale_factor.
+The unit is in percent.
+Max value is 1000 and min value is 100. (High watermark is the same as
