We have a horrid confusion that I'm trying to clean up stealthily
without anyone noticing. I would have gotten away with it too if it
weren't for you pesky kids.

#define PAGE_FLAGS_PRIVATE \
(1UL << PG_private | 1UL << PG_private_2)

static inline int page_has_private(struct page *page)
{
return !!(page->flags & PAGE_FLAGS_PRIVATE);
}

So what this function is saying is that there is one extra refcount
expected on the struct page if PG_private _or_ PG_private_2 is set.

How are filesystems expected to manage their page's refcount with this
rule? Increment the refcount when setting PG_private unless
PG_private_2 is already set? Decrement the refcount when clearing
PG_private_2 unless PG_private is set?

This is garbage. IMO, PG_private_2 should have no bearing on the page's
refcount. Only btrfs and the netfs's use private_2 and neither of them
do anything to the refcount when setting/clearing it. So that's what
I'm implementing here.

Oh, that's where it went ;-) I had a compile error due to a missing
semicolon at some point, and thought it was just a typo ...
