mm: shrinker trace points: fix negatives

I was looking at a trace of the slab shrinkers (attachment in this comment):

	https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=72742#c67



and noticed that "total_scan" can go negative in some cases.  We
used to dump out the "total_scan" variable directly, but some of
the shrinker modifications along the way changed that.

This patch just dumps it out directly, again.  It doesn't make
any sense to derive it from new_nr and nr any more since there
are now other shrinkers that can be running in parallel and
mucking with those values.

Here's an example of the negative numbers in the output:
