Subject[PATCH 1/4] pull out the page pre-release and sanity check logic for reuse
Date
When we are about to release a page we perform a number of actions
on that page. We clear down any anonymous mappings, confirm that
the page is safe to release, check for freeing locks, before mapping
the page should that be required. Pull this processing out into a
helper function for reuse in a later patch.

Note that we do not convert the similar cleardown in free_hot_cold_page()
as the optimiser is unable to squash the loops during the inline.
