Done. Also I think it's better not to split the `found' case into
the two cases of 'found & lock-ok' and 'found & wait-lock' for now.
That would reduce some more code:

-/*
- * A successful mmap hit is when we didn't need any IO at all,
- * and got an immediate lock on an up-to-date page. There's not
- * much to do, except decide on whether we want to trigger read-
- * ahead.
- *
- * We currently do the same thing as we did for a locked page
- * that we're waiting for.
- */
-static void do_mmap_hit(struct vm_area_struct *vma,
- struct file_ra_state *ra,
- struct file *file,
- struct page *page,
- pgoff_t offset)
-{
- do_async_mmap_readahead(vma, ra, file, page, offset);
-}
-
/**
* filemap_fault - read in file data for page fault handling
* @vma: vma in which the fault was taken
@@ -1411,28 +1396,13 @@
return VM_FAULT_SIGBUS;

/*
- * Do we have something in the page cache already that
- * is unlocked and already up-to-date?
+ * Do we have something in the page cache already?
*/
page = find_get_page(mapping, offset);
if (likely(page)) {
- if (likely(!TestSetPageLocked(page))) {
- /*
- * Previous IO error? No read-ahead, but try to
- * re-do a single read.
- */
- if (unlikely(!PageUptodate(page)))
- goto page_not_uptodate;
-
- do_mmap_hit(vma, ra, file, page, offset);
- goto found_it;
- }
-
/*
- * We found the page, but it was locked..
- *
- * So do async readahead and wait for it to
- * unlock.
+ * We found the page, so try async readahead before

*/
do_async_mmap_readahead(vma, ra, file, page, offset);
lock_page(page);
