Subject: [PATCH 1/6] mm: memcontrol: track LRU counts in the vmstats array

The memcg code currently maintains private per-zone breakdowns of the
LRU counters. This is necessary for reclaim decisions which are still
zone-based, but there are a variety of users of these counters that
only want the aggregate per-lruvec or per-memcg LRU counts, and they
need to painfully sum up the zone counters on each request for that.

These would be better served using the memcg vmstats arrays, which
track VM statistics at the desired scope already. They just don't have
the LRU counts right now.

So to kick off the conversion, begin tracking LRU counts in those.
