It's bad naming alright, but what is the wrapper for both of them
supposed to be called then?

Note that this function is only temporary, though, that's why I did
not spent much time on looking for a better name.

When the per-memcg lru lists finally become exclusive, this is removed
and the function converted to work on lruvecs.

Would you be okay with just adding an /* XXX */ to the function in
this patch that mentions that it's only temporary?
