Subject: [RFC PATCH 2/3] mm: Drop use of test_and_set_skip in favor of just
 setting skip

From: Alexander Duyck <alexander.h.duyck@...ux.intel.com>

The only user of test_and_set_skip was isolate_migratepages_block and it
was using it after a call that was testing and clearing the LRU flag. As
such it really didn't need to be behind the LRU lock anymore as it wasn't
really fulfilling its purpose.

With that being the case we can simply drop the bit and instead directly
just call the set_pageblock_skip function if the page we are working on is
the valid_page at the start of the pageblock. It shouldn't be possible for
us to encounter the bit being set since we obtained the LRU flag for the
first page in the pageblock which means we would have exclusive access to
setting the skip bit. As such we don't need to worry about the abort case
since no other thread will be able to call what used to be
test_and_set_skip.

Since we have dropped the late abort case we can drop the code that was
clearing the LRU flag and calling page_put since the abort case will now
not be holding a reference to a page.
