unlike mm/memory.c; mm/ksm.c is compiled only when CONFIG_KSM is set.
So if we dont move it out of ksm.c; we will have to make uprobes
dependent on CONFIG_KSM. Since replace_page is the only function we are
interested in, its better to move it out of ksm.c, rather than
making uprobes dependent on CONFIG_KSM.
