The local variable references in shrink_page_list is PAGEREF_RECLAIM_CLEAN
as default. It is for preventing to reclaim dirty pages when CMA try to
migrate pages. Strictly speaking, we don't need it because CMA didn't allow
to write out by .may_writepage = 0 in reclaim_clean_pages_from_list.

Moreover, it has a problem to prevent anonymous pages's swap out even
though force_reclaim = true in shrink_page_list on upcoming patch.
So this patch makes references's default value to PAGEREF_RECLAIM and
rename force_reclaim with ignore_references to make it more clear.

This is a preparatory work for next patch.
