Subject[RFC PATCH 3/10] define page_file_cache
Define page_file_cache() function to answer the question:
is page backed by a file?

Originally part of Rik van Riel's split-lru patch. Extracted
to make available for other, independent reclaim patches.

Moved inline function to linux/mm_inline.h where it will
be needed by subsequent "split LRU" and "noreclaim" patches.

Unfortunately this needs to use a page flag, since the
PG_swapbacked state needs to be preserved all the way
to the point where the page is last removed from the
LRU. Trying to derive the status from other info in
the page resulted in wrong VM statistics in earlier
split VM patchsets.
