vmscan: let GFP_NOFS go to swap again
In the past, GFP_NOFS (but of course not GFP_NOIO) was allowed to reclaim by writing to swap. That got partially broken in 2.6.23, when may_enter_fs initialization was moved up before the allocation of swap, so its PageSwapCache test was failing the first time around, Fix it by setting may_enter_fs when add_to_swap() succeeds with __GFP_IO. In fact, check __GFP_IO before calling add_to_swap(): allocating swap we're not ready to use just increases disk seeking.
