Yes, then the reclaim_idx and classzone_idx needs to be updated if
buffer_heads_over_limit in the check above but that is better anyway.

I think it's ok in the buffer_heads_over_limit case to reclaim
from more zones than requested. It may require another pass through
do_try_to_free_pages if a low zone was not reclaimed and required by the
caller but that's ok and expected if there are too many buffer_heads.

That gets fixed in "mm, memcg: move memcg limit enforcement from zones
to nodes" but I can move the hunk to this patch to make bisection a
little easier.
