Subject[PATCH] z3fold: use kref to prevent page free / compact race
There is a race in the current z3fold implementation between
do_compact() called in a work queue context and the page release
procedure when page's kref goes to 0. do_compact() may be waiting
for page lock, which is released by release_z3fold_page_locked
right before putting the page onto the "stale" list, and then the
page may be freed as do_compact() modifies its contents.

The mechanism currently implemented to handle that (checking the
PAGE_STALE flag) is not reliable enough. Instead, we'll use page's
kref counter to guarantee that the page is not released if its
compaction is scheduled. It then becomes compaction function's
responsibility to decrease the counter and quit immediately if
the page was actually freed.
