vmscan: rename sc.may_swap to may_unmap
Johannes Weiner [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:19:30 +0000 (15:19 -0700)]
sc.may_swap does not only influence reclaiming of anon pages but pages
mapped into pagetables in general, which also includes mapped file pages.

In shrink_page_list():

if (!sc->may_swap && page_mapped(page))
goto keep_locked;

For anon pages, this makes sense as they are always mapped and reclaiming
them always requires swapping.

But mapped file pages are skipped here as well and it has nothing to do
with swapping.

The real effect of the knob is whether mapped pages are unmapped and
reclaimed or not.  Rename it to `may_unmap' to have its name match its
actual meaning more precisely.
