shrink_zone() can deactivate active anon pages even if we don't have a
swap device.  Many embedded products don't have a swap device.  So the
deactivation of anon pages is unnecessary.

This patch prevents unnecessary deactivation of anon lru pages.  But, it
don't prevent aging of anon pages to swap out.
