Considerable contention on the LRU lock happens when multiple threads
are used to insert pages into a shmem file in parallel. To alleviate this
provide a way for pages to be added to the same LRU to be staged so that
they can be added by splicing lists and updating stats once with the lock
held. For now only unevictable pages are supported.
