Subject[PATCH 2/4] Add replace_page(): change the page pte is pointing to.
Date
replace_page() allow changing the mapping of pte from one physical page
into diffrent physical page.

This function is working by removing oldpage from the rmap and calling
put_page on it, and by setting the pte to point into newpage and by
inserting it to the rmap using page_add_file_rmap().

Note: newpage must be non anonymous page, the reason for this is:
replace_page() is built to allow mapping one page into more than one
virtual addresses, the mapping of this page can happen in diffrent
offsets inside each vma, and therefore we cannot trust the page->index
anymore.

The side effect of this issue is that newpage cannot be anything but
kernel allocated page that is not swappable.
