vmscan: synchronous lumpy reclaim should not call congestion_wait()
KOSAKI Motohiro [Tue, 26 Oct 2010 21:21:41 +0000 (14:21 -0700)]
congestion_wait() means "wait until queue congestion is cleared".
However, synchronous lumpy reclaim does not need this congestion_wait() as
shrink_page_list(PAGEOUT_IO_SYNC) uses wait_on_page_writeback() and it
provides the necessary waiting.
