Subject[PATCH v10 6/6] mm/vmstat: avoid queueing work item if cpu stats are clean
It is not necessary to queue work item to run refresh_vm_stats
on a remote CPU if that CPU has no dirty stats and no per-CPU
allocations for remote nodes.

This fixes sosreport hang (which uses vmstat_refresh) with
spinning SCHED_FIFO process.
