super: fix calculation of shrinkable objects for small numbers

The sysctl knob sysctl_vfs_cache_pressure is used to determine which
percentage of the shrinkable objects in our cache we should actively try
to shrink.

It works great in situations in which we have many objects (at least more
than 100), because the aproximation errors will be negligible.  But if
this is not the case, specially when total_objects < 100, we may end up
concluding that we have no objects at all (total / 100 = 0, if total <
100).

This is certainly not the biggest killer in the world, but may matter in
very low kernel memory situations.
