Subject: [PATCH v2 5/7] mm, page_alloc: cache pageset high and batch in struct
  zone

All per-cpu pagesets for a zone use the same high and batch values, that are
duplicated there just for performance (locality) reasons. This patch adds the
same variables also to struct zone as a shared copy.

This will be useful later for making possible to disable pcplists temporarily
by setting high value to 0, while remembering the values for restoring them
later. But we can also immediately benefit from not updating pagesets of all
possible cpus in case the newly recalculated values (after sysctl change or
memory online/offline) are actually unchanged from the previous ones.
