mm: take pagevecs off reclaim stack
Replace pagevecs in putback_lru_pages() and move_active_pages_to_lru() by lists of pages_to_free: then apply Konstantin Khlebnikov's free_hot_cold_page_list() to them instead of pagevec_release(). Which simplifies the flow (no need to drop and retake lock whenever pagevec fills up) and reduces stale addresses in stack backtraces (which often showed through the pagevecs); but more importantly, removes another 120 bytes from the deepest stacks in page reclaim. Although I've not recently seen an actual stack overflow here with a vanilla kernel, move_active_pages_to_lru() has often featured in deep backtraces. However, free_hot_cold_page_list() does not handle compound pages (nor need it: a Transparent HugePage would have been split by the time it reaches the call in shrink_page_list()), but it is possible for putback_lru_pages() or move_active_pages_to_lru() to be left holding the last reference on a THP, so must exclude the unlikely compound case before putting on pages_to_free. Remove pagevec_strip(), its work now done in move_active_pages_to_lru(). The pagevec in scan_mapping_unevictable_pages() remains in mm/vmscan.c, but that is never on the reclaim path, and cannot be replaced by a list.
