Subject[patch 4/8] mm: vmscan: clarify LRU balancing close to OOM
Date
There are currently several inter-LRU balancing heuristics that simply
get disabled when the reclaimer is at the last reclaim cycle before
giving up, but the code is quite cumbersome and not really obvious.

Make the heuristics visibly unreachable for the last reclaim cycle.
