Subject: [patch 3/3] mm, oom: rename zonelist locking functions

try_set_zonelist_oom() and clear_zonelist_oom() are not named properly to imply 
that they require locking semantics to avoid out_of_memory() being reordered.

zone_scan_lock is required for both functions to ensure that there is proper 
locking synchronization.

Rename try_set_zonelist_oom() to oom_zonelist_trylock() and rename 
clear_zonelist_oom() to oom_zonelist_unlock() to imply there is proper locking 
semantics.

At the same time, convert oom_zonelist_trylock() to return bool instead of int 
since only success and failure are tested.
