Subject: [PATCH 5.13 104/156] Revert "mm/shmem: fix shmem_swapin() race with swapoff"

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@...uxfoundation.org>

This reverts commit a533a21b692fc15a6aadfa827b29c7d9989109ca which is
commit 2efa33fc7f6ec94a3a538c1a264273c889be2b36 upstream.

It should not have been added to the stable trees, sorry about that.
