Subject[02/14] vcompound: pageflags: Add PageVcompound()
Add a another page flag that can be used to figure out if a compound
page is virtually mapped. The mark is necessary since we have to know
when freeing pages if we have to destroy a virtual mapping.

No additional flag is needed. We use PG_swapcache together with PG_compound
(similar to PageHead() and PageTail()) to signal that a compound
page is virtually mapped. PG_swapcache is not used at this point since
compound pages cannot be put onto the LRU (yet).
