here an example of how inferior and error prone it is to have
mmu_notifier_age_page and invalidate_page outside of pgtable.h, you
just managed to break again with the above || go figure. The
mmu_notifier_age_page has to be called unconditionally regardless of
ptep_clear_flush_young return value, we want to give only one
additional LRU scan to the referenced pages, not more than that or the
KVM guest pages will get tons more priority than the regular linux
anonymous memory.

Here the same exact aging regression compared to my code.
