Subjectz3fold: fix potential race in z3fold_reclaim_page
It is possible that on a (partially) unsuccessful page reclaim,
kref_put() called in z3fold_reclaim_page() does not yield page
release, but the page is released shortly afterwards by another
thread. Then z3fold_reclaim_page() would try to list_add() that
(released) page again which is obviously a bug.

To avoid that, spin_lock() has to be taken earlier, before the
kref_put() call mentioned earlier.
