Revert "revert "mm: vmscan: do not swap anon pages just because free+file is low""
This reverts commit 623762517e2370be3b3f95f4fe08d6c063a49b06. Ben rightly points out that commit 0bf1457f0cfc, which is what this original commit was reverting, never ended up in 3.14-stable, but was only for 3.15. So revert this patch as we now have the same check twice in a row, which is pretty pointless. Although the comments were "prettier"...
