Subject[v1] mm: khugepaged: avoid overriding min_free_kbytes set by user
Date
set_recommended_min_free_kbytes need to honor min_free_kbytes set by the
user. Post start-of-day THP enable or memory hotplug operations can
lose user specified min_free_kbytes, in particular when it is higher than
calculated recommended value.
