Reclaim anonymous pages if a migration path is available now that
demotion provides a non-swap recourse for reclaiming anon pages.

Note that this check is subtly different from the
anon_should_be_aged() checks.  This mechanism checks whether a
specific page in a specific context *can* actually be reclaimed, given
current swap space and cgroup limits

anon_should_be_aged() is a much simpler and more preliminary check
which just says whether there is a possibility of future reclaim.

Changes from Dave 10/2020:
 * remove 'total_swap_pages' modification

Changes from Dave 06/2020:
 * rename reclaim_anon_pages()->can_reclaim_anon_pages()

Note: Keith's Intel SoB is commented out because he is no
longer at Intel and his @intel.com mail will bounce.

When neither swap space nor RECLAIM_MIGRATE is enabled, but
next_demotion_node() is configured, inactive pages cannot be swapped out
nor demoted.  However, this check can still cause these pages to be sent
to shrink_page_list() (e.g., when can_reclaim_anon_pages() is called by
get_scan_count()) and make the THP pages being unnecessarily split there.

One fix would be to guard this next_demotion_node() check with the
RECLAIM_MIGRATE node_reclaim_mode check.  This RECLAIM_MIGRATE
check needs to be applied to other calls to next_demotion_node() in
vmscan.c as well.

Demotion of anon pages still depends on sc->may_swap.  Any thoughts on
decoupling
demotion from swapping more completely?
