Subject: [PATCH] mm/thp: don't count ZONE_MOVABLE as the target for freepage reserving

From: Joonsoo Kim <iamjoonsoo.kim@....com>

ZONE_MOVABLE only has movable pages so we don't need to keep enough
freepages to avoid or deal with fragmentation. So, don't count it.

This changes min_free_kbytes and thus min_watermark greatly
if ZONE_MOVABLE is used. It will make the user uses more memory.

o System
22GB ram, fakenuma, 2 nodes. 5 zones are used.

o Before
min_free_kbytes: 112640

zone_info (min_watermark):
Node 0, zone      DMA
        min      19
Node 0, zone    DMA32
        min      3778
Node 0, zone   Normal
        min      10191
Node 0, zone  Movable
        min      0
Node 0, zone   Device
        min      0
Node 1, zone      DMA
        min      0
Node 1, zone    DMA32
        min      0
Node 1, zone   Normal
        min      14043
Node 1, zone  Movable
        min      127
Node 1, zone   Device
        min      0

o After
min_free_kbytes: 90112

zone_info (min_watermark):
Node 0, zone      DMA
        min      15
Node 0, zone    DMA32
        min      3022
Node 0, zone   Normal
        min      8152
Node 0, zone  Movable
        min      0
Node 0, zone   Device
        min      0
Node 1, zone      DMA
        min      0
Node 1, zone    DMA32
        min      0
Node 1, zone   Normal
        min      11234
Node 1, zone  Movable
        min      102
Node 1, zone   Device
        min      0
