Oops, right.  Maybe I was out of my mind while writing this.  Thank you for
correcting this.

After this patchset, someone would turn CONFIG_PAGE_IDLE_FLAG on but
CONFIG_IDLE_PAGE_TRACKING.  In that case, the build will fail because
page_idle.c will not be compiled.  Because below code is used by page_ext.c
only, I think moving into here is ok.
