Subject[PATCH] mm,thp: stop leaking unreleased file pages
When collapse_file() calls try_to_release_page(), it has already
isolated the page: so if releasing buffers happens to fail (as it
sometimes does), remember to putback_lru_page(): otherwise that page is
left unreclaimable and unfreeable, and the file extent uncollapsible.
