Subject: [PATCH -mm] rmap: move exclusively owned pages to own anon_vma in
 do_wp_page

When the parent process breaks the COW on a page, both the original
and the new page end up in that same anon_vma.  Generally this won't
be a problem, but for some workloads it could preserve the O(N) rmap
scanning complexity.

A simple fix is to ensure that, when a page gets reused in do_wp_page,
because we already are the exclusive owner, the page gets moved to our
own exclusive anon_vma.
