vmscan: don't export nr_saved_scan in /proc/zoneinfo

The lru->nr_saved_scan's are not meaningful counters for even kernel
developers.  They typically are smaller than 32 and are always 0 for large
lists.  So remove them from /proc/zoneinfo.

Hopefully this interface change won't break too many scripts.
/proc/zoneinfo is too unstructured to be script friendly, and I wonder the
affected scripts - if there are any - are still bleeding since the not
long ago commit "vmscan: split LRU lists into anon & file sets", which
also touched the "scanned" line :)

If we are to re-export accumulated vmscan counts in the future, they can
go to new lines in /proc/zoneinfo instead of the current form, or to
/sys/devices/system/node/node0/meminfo?
