I haven't see this patch detail and I don't think
mm-update_page_reclaim_stat-is-called-from-page-fault-path.patch

add?

old code: grab zone->lru_lock via mark_page_accessed()
new code: grab zone->lru_lock via update_reclaim_stat()

one remove, one add.

But I agree its lock can be removed maybe..
I'm sorry my late work.
