This looks much better, thanks!

One thought on the ordering here.

When LRU isolation fails, it would still make sense to clear the young
bit: we cannot reclaim the page as we wanted to, but the user still
provided a clear hint that the page is cold and she won't be touching
it for a while. MADV_PAGEOUT is basically MADV_COLD + try_to_reclaim.
So IMO isolation should go to the end next to deactivate_page().
