PG_idle and PG_young allows the two PTE Accessed bit users,
IDLE_PAGE_TRACKING and the reclaim logic concurrently work while don't
interfere each other.  That is, when they need to clear the Accessed
bit, they set PG_young and PG_idle to represent the previous state of
the bit, respectively.  And when they need to read the bit, if the bit
is cleared, they further read the PG_young and PG_idle, respectively, to
know whether the other has cleared the bit meanwhile or not.

We could add another page flag and extend the mechanism to use the flag
if we need to add another concurrent PTE Accessed bit user subsystem.
However, it would be only waste the space.  Instead, if the new
subsystem is mutually exclusive with IDLE_PAGE_TRACKING, it could simply
reuse the PG_idle flag.  However, it's impossible because the flags are
dependent on IDLE_PAGE_TRACKING.

To allow such reuse of the flags, this commit separates the PG_young and
PG_idle flag logic from IDLE_PAGE_TRACKING and introduces new kernel
config, 'PAGE_IDLE_FLAG'.  Hence, if !IDLE_PAGE_TRACKING and
IDLE_PAGE_FLAG, a new subsystem would be able to reuse PG_idle.

In the next commit, DAMON's reference implementation of the virtual
memory address space monitoring primitives will use it.
