Subject[PATCH 1/X] uprobes: write_opcode: the new page needs PG_uptodate
write_opcode()->__replace_page() installs the new anonymous page,
this new_page is PageSwapBacked() and it can be swapped out.

However it forgets to do SetPageUptodate(), fix write_opcode().

For example, this is needed if do_swap_page() finds that orginial
page in the the swap cache (and doesn't try to read it back), in
this case it returns VM_FAULT_SIGBUS.
