From: Ma Wupeng <mawupeng1@huawei.com>

Since min_free_kbytes is based on gfp_zone(GFP_USER) which does not include
zone movable. However zone movable will get its min share in
__setup_per_zone_wmarks() which does not make any sense.

And like highmem pages, __GFP_HIGH and PF_MEMALLOC allocations usually
don't need movable pages, so there is no need to assign min pages for zone

Let's cap pages_min for zone movable to a small value here just link
highmem pages.
