Subject[PATCH -mm 02/16] Use an indexed array for LRU variables
From: Christoph Lameter <clameter@sgi.com>

Currently we are defining explicit variables for the inactive
and active list. An indexed array can be more generic and avoid
repeating similar code in several places in the reclaim code.

We are saving a few bytes in terms of code size:

Before:

text data bss dec hex filename
4097753 573120 4092484 8763357 85b7dd vmlinux

After:

text data bss dec hex filename
4097729 573120 4092484 8763333 85b7c5 vmlinux
Having an easy way to add new lru lists may ease future work on
the reclaim code.
