mm: vmscan: Add a debug file for shrinkers

This patch adds a debugfs file called "shrinker" when read this calls
all the shrinkers in the system with nr_to_scan set to zero and prints
the result.  These results are the number of objects the shrinkers have
available and can thus be used an indication of the total memory
that would be availble to the system if a shrink occurred.
