Subject: [PATCH -V2] mm: Add PageLayzyFree() helper functions for MADV_FREE

From: Huang Ying <ying.huang@...el.com>

Now PageSwapBacked() is used as the helper function to check whether
pages have been freed lazily via MADV_FREE.  This isn't very obvious.
So Dave suggested to add PageLazyFree() family helper functions to
improve the code readability.

Changelog:

v2:

- Avoid code bloat via removing VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(), which doesn't exist
  in the original code.  Now there is no any text/data/bss size
  change.

- Fix one wrong replacement in try_to_unmap_one().
