Subject[rfc patch 2/3] mm: serialize truncation unmap against try_to_unmap()
Date
To munlock private COW pages on truncating unmap, we must serialize
against concurrent reclaimers doing try_to_unmap() so they don't
re-mlock the page before we free it.

Grabbing the page lock is not possible when zapping the page table
entries, so prevent lazy mlock in the reclaimer by holding onto the
anon_vma lock while unmapping a VMA.

The anon_vma can show up only after we tried locking it. Pass it down
in zap_details so that the zapping loops can check for whether we
acquired the lock or not.
