The logic in attach_page_buffers and  __clear_page_buffers are quite
paired, but

1. they are located in different files.

2. attach_page_buffers is implemented in buffer_head.h, so it could be
   used by other files. But __clear_page_buffers is static function in
   buffer.c and other potential users can't call the function, md-bitmap
   even copied the function.

So, introduce the new attach/detach_page_private to replace them. With
the new pair of function, we will remove the usage of attach_page_buffers
and  __clear_page_buffers in next patches. Thanks for suggestions about
the function name from Alexander Viro, Andreas Gr├╝nbacher, Christoph
Hellwig and Matthew Wilcox.

No change since RFC V3.

RFC V2 -> RFC V3:
1. rename clear_page_private to detach_page_private.
2. updated the comments for the two functions.

RFC -> RFC V2:  Address the comments from Christoph Hellwig
1. change function names to attach/clear_page_private and add comments.
2. change the return type of attach_page_private.
