Restoring the code to your original version makes things work again.

OTOH, I almost wonder if we should not simply define it to

return (l == LRU_INACTIVE_FILE || l == LRU_ACTIVE_FILE)
and just deal with it.

Your version of the code is correct and probably faster, but not as
easy to read and probably not in a hot path :)
