For page splitting to succeed, the thread asking to split the
page has to be the only one with a reference to the page.  Calling
wait_on_page_locked() while holding a reference to the page will
effectively prevent this from happening with sufficient threads waiting
on the same page.  Use put_and_wait_on_page_locked() to sleep without
holding a reference to the page, then retry the page lookup after the
page is unlocked.

Since we now get the page lock a little earlier in filemap_update_page(),
we can eliminate a number of duplicate checks.  The original intent
(commit ebded02788b5 ("avoid unnecessary calls to lock_page when waiting
for IO to complete during a read")) behind getting the page lock later
was to avoid re-locking the page after it has been brought uptodate by
another thread.  We still avoid that because we go through the normal
lookup path again after the winning thread has brought the page uptodate.
