[PATCH] mm: micro optimise zone_watermark_ok

Having min be a signed quantity means gcc can't turn high latency divides
into shifts.  There happen to be two such divides for GFP_ATOMIC (ie.
networking, ie.  important) allocations, one of which depends on the other.
 Fixing this makes code smaller as a bonus.

Shame on somebody (probably me).
