SubjectRe: [PATCH 08/31] mm, vmscan: simplify the logic deciding whether kswapd sleeps

Just trivial but this is clean up patch so I suggest one.
If it doesn't help readability, just ignore, please.

This(ie, first prepare_kswapd_sleep always get 0 remaining value so
it's pointless argument for the function. We could remove it and
check it before second prepare_kswapd_sleep call.

full_sleep:


/*
* After a short sleep, check if it was a premature sleep. If not, then
* go fully to sleep until explicitly woken up.
*/
if (!remaining &&
prepare_kswapd_sleep(pgdat, reclaim_order, classzone_idx)) {
trace_mm_vmscan_kswapd_sleep(pgdat->node_id);

It's tricky. Couldn't we change kswapd_classzone_idx to integer type
and remove if above if condition?
