Subject[RFC] restore user defined min_free_kbytes when disabling thp
The testcase 'thp04' of LTP will enable THP, do some testing, then
disable it if it wasn't enabled. But this will leave a different value
of min_free_kbytes if it has been set by admin. So I think it's better
to restore the user defined value after disabling THP.

---

thp increases the value of min_free_kbytes in initialization. This will
change the user defined value of min_free_kbytes. So try to restore the
value when disabling thp.
