Subject[PATCH] adapt page_lock_anon_vma() to PREEMPT_RCU
page_lock_anon_vma() uses spin_lock() to block RCU. This doesn't work with
PREEMPT_RCU, we have to do rcu_read_lock() explicitely. Otherwise, it is
theoretically possible that slab returns anon_vma's memory to the system
before we do spin_unlock(&anon_vma->lock).
