"Restore" sounds as if the protection used to be there and then it was removed.
If it's the case, it should be said what commit did that. Otherwise I would say
"implement", not "restore"?

I would rephrase it: "After the following patch, newly created or swap-in pages
will start their lifetime... "

"In order to provide the newly anonymous pages enough chance to be referenced
again..."

Here I would add:

This is just a temporary measure. Later patch in the series introduces
workingset detection for anonymous LRU that will be used to better decide if
pages should start on the active and inactive list. Afterwards this patch is
effectively reverted.
