vmscan: count pages into balanced for zone with good watermark
Shaohua Li [Tue, 1 Nov 2011 00:08:02 +0000 (17:08 -0700)]
It's possible a zone watermark is ok when entering the balance_pgdat()
loop, while the zone is within the requested classzone_idx.  Count pages
from this zone into `balanced'.  In this way, we can skip shrinking zones
too much for high order allocation.
