mm: remove lru_add_drain_all() from the munlock path
lockdep warns about following message at boot time on one of my test machine. Then, schedule_on_each_cpu() sholdn't be called when the task have mmap_sem. Actually, lru_add_drain_all() exist to prevent the unevictalble pages stay on reclaimable lru list. but currenct unevictable code can rescue unevictable pages although it stay on reclaimable list. So removing is better. In addition, this patch add lru_add_drain_all() to sys_mlock() and sys_mlockall(). it isn't must. but it reduce the failure of moving to unevictable list. its failure can rescue in vmscan later. but reducing is better. Note, if above rescuing happend, the Mlocked and the Unevictable field mismatching happend in /proc/meminfo. but it doesn't cause any real trouble.
