Subject[patch 02/11] mm: vmscan: distinguish global reclaim from global LRU scanning
Date
The traditional zone reclaim code is scanning the per-zone LRU lists
during direct reclaim and kswapd, and the per-zone per-memory cgroup
LRU lists when reclaiming on behalf of a memory cgroup limit.

Subsequent patches will convert the traditional reclaim code to
reclaim exclusively from the per-memory cgroup LRU lists. As a
result, using the predicate for which LRU list is scanned will no
longer be appropriate to tell global reclaim from limit reclaim.

This patch adds a global_reclaim() predicate to tell direct/kswapd
reclaim from memory cgroup limit reclaim and substitutes it in all
places where currently scanning_global_lru() is used for that.
