     vmscan: fix do_try_to_free_pages() return value when priority==0 reclaim failure

At first impression, this seemed very strange because the above commit
only chenged function return value and hibernate_preallocate_memory()
ignore return value of shrink_all_memory().  But it's related.

Now, page allocation from hibernation code may enter infinite loop if the
system has highmem.  The reasons are that vmscan don't care enough OOM
case when oom_killer_disabled.

The problem sequence is following as.

1. hibernation
2. oom_disable
3. alloc_pages
4. do_try_to_free_pages
       if (scanning_global_lru(sc) && !all_unreclaimable)
               return 1;

If kswapd is not freozen, it would set zone->all_unreclaimable to 1 and
then shrink_zones maybe return true(ie, all_unreclaimable is true).  So at
last, alloc_pages could go to _nopage_.  If it is, it should have no
problem.

This patch adds all_unreclaimable check to protect in direct reclaim path,
too.  It can care of hibernation OOM case and help bailout
all_unreclaimable case slightly.
