I'm amused to notice that your merging process is as impatient as akpm,
and just cannot wait for Mel to remove lumpy reclaim from mm/vmscan.c.

It has chosen to do so itself, by duplicating Konstantin's "mm: forbid
lumpy-reclaim in shrink_active_list()" (we had expected that to be held
back, but it's gone in anyway, oh well) into shrink_inactive_list(),
overriding the set_reclaim_mode() a few lines above with a spurious
reset_reclaim_mode(sc).

I expect that will sort itself out automatically once you get an update
from akpm, but something to beware of meanwhile (probably just a matter
of deleting Konstantin's patch from your trove now it's in Linus's tree).
Corrective patch below for illustration, but would need to be applied
with care: I wouldn't be surprised if it chose to do exactly the wrong
thing when applied automatically.
