Subject: [HMM 02/15] mm/put_page: move ZONE_DEVICE page reference decrement v2

Move page reference decrement of ZONE_DEVICE from put_page()
to put_zone_device_page() this does not affect non ZONE_DEVICE
page.

Doing this allow to catch when a ZONE_DEVICE page refcount reach
1 which means the device is no longer reference by any one (unlike
page from other zone, ZONE_DEVICE page refcount never reach 0).

This patch is just a preparatory patch for HMM.

Changes since v1:
