I don't think this chunk makes this code easier to understand. I'd just
keep this as is. IOW, I prefer PageSwapBacked() over !__PageLazyFree().


In general, I don't think this patch really improves the situation ...
it's only a handful of places where this change slightly makes the code
easier to understand. And there, only slightly ... I'd prefer better
comments instead (e.g., in PageAnon()), documenting what it means for a
anon page to either have PageSwapBacked() set or not.
