Yes. Having been dinged one too many times for adding extraneous
#ifdef's to .c's I try to avoid that...

Note that in page-flags.h, we define MLOCK_PAGES as 0 or 1 based on
CONFIG_HAVE_MLOCKED_PAGE_BIT, so you could test that in
free_page_mlock() to eliminate the #ifdef in page_alloc.c as we do in
try_to_unmap_*() over in rmap.c. Guess I could have done that when I
added MLOCK_PAGES. Got lost in the heat of the battle.
