Here is another cleanup: pass only pgdat as argument.

This function reavaluates lruvec for each page under lru lock.
Probably this is redundant for now but could be used in the future (or your patchset already use that).

Please leave a comment that we must set PageLRU before dropping our page reference.

IMHO It looks better to in this way:

SetPageLRU()

if (unlikely(put_page_testzero())) {
<free>
continue;
}

<add>
