    Btw, why isn't the code in __page_set_anon_rmap() also doing this
    cleaner version (ie a single "if (PageAnon(page)) return;" up front)?

    The comments in that function are also some alien language translated
    to english by some broken automatic translation service. Could
    somebody clean up that function and come up with a comment that
    actually parses as English and makes sense?
