inline the shmem_mapping(), and use shmem_mapping()
instead of 'inode->i_mapping->a_ops == &shmem_aops'
in shmem_evict_inode().

v1->v2:
remove the inline for func declaration in shmem_fs.h

huh.  I'd have expected the inlining in shmem_evict_inode() to not work
because the compiler hasn't seen the definition yet.  But gcc has
evidently become smarter about that.

But really, shmem_mapping() isn't worth an out-of-line call from any
callsite - it would be best to make it inlined everywhere.

- make shmem_aops global
- declare shmem_aops in shmem_fs.h
- export shmem_aops to modules for drivers/dma-buf/udmabuf.c
- include linux/fs.h in shmem_fs.h for address_space_operations (we already
  include fs.h via swap.h, but we shouldn't depend on that)
- make shmem_mapping() a static inline in shmem_fs.h.

... or use an AS_ bit to make shmem_mapping() global inline without
exposing the shmem_aops symbol.  We're not short of AS_ bits, and it's
probably even cheaper than a pointer comparison.

A really good changelog would explain why we need shmem_mapping()
everywhere that we currently use it.  It's not immediately obvious why
so many places need to know.

Yeah, thanks.
