[PATCH] vmscan: no zone_reclaim if PF_MALLOC is set
If the process has already set PF_MALLOC and is already using current->reclaim_state then do not try to reclaim memory from the zone. This is set by kswapd and/or synchrononous global reclaim which will not take it lightly if we zap the reclaim_state.
