[PATCH] setup_per_zone_pages_min() overflow fix
As pointed out in http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6490, this function can experience overflows on 32-bit machines, causing our response to changed values of min_free_kbytes to go whacky. Fixing it efficiently is all too hard, so fix it with 64-bit math instead.
