Subject[PATCH 2/4] mm/rmap: fix old bug: munlocking THP missed other mlocks
The kernel recovers in due course from missing Mlocked pages: but there
was no point in calling page_mlock() (formerly known as try_to_munlock())
on a THP, because nothing got done even when it was found to be mapped in
another VM_LOCKED vma.

It's true that we need to be careful: Mlocked accounting of pte-mapped
THPs is too difficult (so consistently avoided); but Mlocked accounting
of only-pmd-mapped THPs is supposed to work, even when multiple mappings
are mlocked and munlocked or munmapped. Refine the tests.

There is already a VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(PageDoubleMap) in page_mlock(), so
page_mlock_one() does not even have to worry about that complication.

(I said the kernel recovers: but would page reclaim be likely to split
THP before rediscovering that it's VM_LOCKED? I've not followed that up.)

Fixes: 9a73f61bdb8a ("thp, mlock: do not mlock PTE-mapped file huge pages")
