SubjectRe: [PATCH REBASED] mm, memcg: Make scan aggression always exclude protection

We check if the memcg is min protected as a precondition for coming into this
function at all, so this generally isn't possible. See the mem_cgroup_protected
MEMCG_PROT_MIN check in shrink_node.

(Of course, it's possible we race with going within protection thresholds
again, but this patch doesn't make that any better or worse than the previous
situation.)
