Goal of mem_cgroup_rotate_reclaimable_page is same with rotate_reclaimable_page.
It means the page was already in inactive list.
Look at the check !PageActive(page).

But if you want to make the function generally(ie, support
active->inactive, too), I don't mind it. but if you want it, let's
make rotate_reclaimable_page to general function, too. but now any
user doesn't use it.

Thanks for the careful review.
