If I read code properly, __munlock_isolated_page calls try_to_munlock
always pass the TestClearPageMlocked page to try_to_munlock.
(e.g., munlock_vma_page and __munlock_pagevec) so I thought
try_to_munlock should be called non-PG_mlocked page and try_to_unmap_one
returns PG_mlocked page once it found a VM_LOCKED VMA for a page.
IOW, non-PG_mlocked page is precondition for try_to_munlock.
