We need to differ the situations, when shrinker has
very small amount of objects (see vfs_pressure_ratio()
called from super_cache_count()), and when it has no
objects at all. Currently, in the both of these cases,
shrinker::count_objects() returns 0.

The patch introduces new SHRINK_EMPTY return value,
which will be used for "no objects at all" case.
It's is a refactoring mostly, as SHRINK_EMPTY is replaced
by 0 by all callers of do_shrink_slab() in this patch,
and all the magic will happen in further.
