mm: vmscan: distinguish between memcg triggering reclaim and memcg being scanned

Memory cgroup hierarchies are currently handled completely outside of
the traditional reclaim code, which is invoked with a single memory
cgroup as an argument for the whole call stack.

Subsequent patches will switch this code to do hierarchical reclaim, so
there needs to be a distinction between a) the memory cgroup that is
triggering reclaim due to hitting its limit and b) the memory cgroup
that is being scanned as a child of a).

This patch introduces a struct mem_cgroup_zone that contains the
combination of the memory cgroup and the zone being scanned, which is
then passed down the stack instead of the zone argument.
