Subject: [PATCH 1/3] mm: Uncharge and keep page in pagecache on memcg reclaim

This patch makes __remove_mapping() not remove a page from
pagecache on memcg reclaim. After all mappings are removed
and refcounter is freezed, we uncharge page memcg. Further
putback_lru_page() places page into root_mem_cgroup, so it
remains in pagecache till global reclaim. This gives memcg
tasks extra possibility to obtain page from pagecache
instead of launching IO.

Next patch makes pagecache_get_page() to recharge a page
in case of its memcg is NULL (i.e., on first access after
uncharging). It looks to be the only function, which is
used by filesystems to obtain a pagecache page. Here we
introduce AS_KEEP_MEMCG_RECLAIM flag to mark the filesystems,
which are reviewed, that they really follow this way. It
has a sense to keep pages in __remove_mapping() only for
them. Later, we remove this flags after all filesystems are
reviewed.
