When testing shmem swapin, I encountered the warning below on my machine.
The reason is that replacing an old shmem folio with a new one causes
mem_cgroup_migrate() to clear the old folio's memcg data. As a result,
the old folio cannot get the correct memcg's lruvec needed to remove itself
from the LRU list when it is being freed. This could lead to possible serious
problems, such as LRU list crashes due to holding the wrong LRU lock, and
incorrect LRU statistics.

To fix this issue, we can fallback to use the mem_cgroup_replace_folio()
to replace the old shmem folio.

Please just delete this sentence.  Functions do not keep track of who
their callers are.

Sure. This sentence seems less helpful. Will do in v3.
