Actually ANON/FILE ACTIVE/INACTIVE checks does not required at non-lumpy reclaim
(all pages are picked from right lru list) and compaction (it does not care).
But seems like removing these two bit-checks cannot give noticeable performance gain.

This patch can be postponed. It does not so important and
it does not share context with other patches in this set.

Yes, I missed this. Thanks.
