Thanks for comments, Matthew!

We will check and lock lruvec after lock_page_memcg, so if it works well, a page
won't moved from one lruvec to another. Also the later debug do this check, to
see if lruvec changed.

If you mean lru list not lruvec, It seems there is noway to figure out the lru list
from a page now.
