mm, vmscan: only allocate and reclaim from zones with pages managed by the buddy allocator
Firmware Assisted Dump (FA_DUMP) on ppc64 reserves substantial amounts of memory when booting a secondary kernel. Srikar Dronamraju reported that multiple nodes may have no memory managed by the buddy allocator but still return true for populated_zone(). Commit 1d82de618ddd ("mm, vmscan: make kswapd reclaim in terms of nodes") was reported to cause kswapd to spin at 100% CPU usage when fadump was enabled. The old code happened to deal with the situation of a populated node with zero free pages by co-incidence but the current code tries to reclaim populated zones without realising that is impossible. We cannot just convert populated_zone() as many existing users really need to check for present_pages. This patch introduces a managed_zone() helper and uses it in the few cases where it is critical that the check is made for managed pages -- zonelist construction and page reclaim.
