Subject[patch 07/19] (NEW) add some sanity checks to get_scan_ratio
The access ratio based scan rate determination in get_scan_ratio
works ok in most situations, but needs to be corrected in some
corner cases:
- if we run out of swap space, do not bother scanning the anon LRUs
- if we have already freed all of the page cache, we need to scan
the anon LRUs
