Hm, this is calling workingset_refault() on a page that isn't charged
to a cgroup yet. That means the refault stats and inactive age counter
will be bumped incorrectly in the root cgroup instead of the real one.

You need to look up and remember the shadow entry at the top and call
workingset_refault() after mem_cgroup_commit_charge() has run.

It'd be nice if we could do the shadow lookup for everybody in
lookup_swap_cache(), but that's subject to race conditions if multiple
faults on the same swap page happen in multiple vmas concurrently. The
swapcache bypass scenario is only safe because it checks that there is
a single pte under the mmap sem to prevent forking. So it looks like
you have to bubble up the shadow entry through swapin_readahead().
