I am fine with you squashing it with another patch if you want. In
theory this could probably be squashed in with the earlier patch I
submitted that introduced lruvec_holds_page_lru_lock or some other
patch. It is mostly just a cleanup anyway as it gets us away from
needing to hold the RCU read lock in the case that we already have the
correct lruvec.
