Subject: [PATCH mmotm] vmscan move pgdeactivate modification to shrink_active_list
 fix2

A second fix to the ill-starred
vmscan-move-pgdeactivate-modification-to-shrink_active_list.patch
which, once corrected to update the right counters by the first fix,
builds up absurdly large Active counts in /proc/meminfo.

nr_rotated is not the number of pages added back to the active list
(maybe it once was, maybe it should be again: but if so that's not
any business for a code rearrangement patch).  shrink_active_list()
needs to keep a separate nr_reactivated count of those.

Signed-off-by: Hugh Dickins <hugh.dickins@...cali.co.uk>

Or... revert the offending patch and its first fix.
