Subject[PATCH 3/5] Direct Migration V8: remove_from_swap() to remove swap ptes
Add remove_from_swap

remove_from_swap() allows the restoration of the pte entries that existed
before page migration occurred for anonymous pages by walking the reverse
maps. This reduces swap use and establishes regular pte's without the need
for page faults.

V7->V8:
- Move the removing of the page from the swap entries and from the swap
cache to migrate page so that it can be done while the page lock
on the new page is held.
- Unlock anon_vma
- Remove the page from the page cache

V5->V6:
- Somehow V5 did a remove_from_swap for the old page. Changed to new
page

V3->V4:
- Add new function remove_vma_swap in swapfile.c to encapsulate
the functionality needed instead of exporting unuse_vma.
- Add #ifdef CONFIG_MIGRATION
