Subject: [PATCH mmotm/next] mm: memcontrol: rewrite charge API: fix
 shmem_unuse

Under shmem swapping and swapoff load, I sometimes hit the
VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(!page->mapping) in mem_cgroup_commit_charge() at
mm/memcontrol.c:6502!  Each time it has been a call from shmem_unuse().

Yes, there are some cases (most commonly when the page being unswapped
is in a file being unlinked and evicted at that time) when the charge
should not be committed.  In the old scheme, the page got uncharged
again on release; but in the new scheme, it hits that BUG beforehand.

It's a useful BUG, so adapt shmem_unuse() to allow for it.  Which needs
more info from shmem_unuse_inode(): so abuse -EAGAIN internally to
replace the previous !found state (-ENOENT would be a more natural
code, but that's exactly what you get when the swap has been evicted).
