Subject: [PATCH] mm: add prototype for __add_to_page_cache_locked()

Otherwise it causes a gcc warning:

../mm/filemap.c:830:14: warning: no previous prototype for
`__add_to_page_cache_locked' [-Wmissing-prototypes]

A previous attempt to make this function static led to compilation
errors when CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_BTF is enabled because
__add_to_page_cache_locked() is referred to by BPF code.

Adding a prototype will silence the warning.
