SubjectRe: please revert bogus patch to vmscan.c

Sure. But do it correctly and perform a tlb flush higher up in the page

hard to track down bugs is just stupid.

It isn't a bug, the referenced bit is a heuristic. The referenced bit
being wrong cannot result in corrupted user memory.

Franks a lot,
