    Both callers of do_try_to_free_pages() _do_ initialise
    scan_control.nr_reclaimed. The unitemised fields in a struct
    initaliser are reliably zeroed.

    We often rely upon this, and the only reason for mentioning such a
    field is for documentation reasons, or if you want to add a comment at
    the initialisation site.
