It was suggested during my last round of OOM killer fixes that one of
my patches, which just checked nr_free_buffer_pages() > 0, should also
consider userspace (i.e. reclaimable at will) memory free.

This patch implements that suggestion. Lightly tested, and expected to
fall within the "relatively trivial" category.

We're still not out of hot water here yet, since the minimum thresholds
will still send all processes into perpetual torpor under persistent
low memory conditions while fooling the OOM heuristics. But this is at
least better than complete ignorance of ZONE_NORMAL exhaustion.
