When retract_page_tables() removes a page table to make way for a huge
pmd, it holds huge page lock, i_mmap_lock_write, mmap_write_trylock and
pmd lock; but when collapse_pte_mapped_thp() does the same (to handle
the case when the original mmap_write_trylock had failed), only
mmap_write_trylock and pmd lock are held.

That's not enough.  One machine has twice crashed under load, with
"BUG: spinlock bad magic" and GPF on 6b6b6b6b6b6b6b6b.  Examining the
second crash, page_vma_mapped_walk_done()'s spin_unlock of pvmw->ptl
(serving page_referenced() on a file THP, that had found a page table
at *pmd) discovers that the page table page and its lock have already
been freed by the time it comes to unlock.

Follow the example of retract_page_tables(), but we only need one of
huge page lock or i_mmap_lock_write to secure against this: because it's
the narrower lock, and because it simplifies collapse_pte_mapped_thp()
to know the hpage earlier, choose to rely on huge page lock here.

We could avoid the page cache lookup by locking the page on the first
valid PTE and recheck page->mapping, but this way is cleaner.
