At present we define PageAnon(page) by the low PAGE_MAPPING_ANON bit set in page->mapping, with the higher bits a pointer to the anon_vma; and have defined PageKsm(page) as that with NULL anon_vma. But KSM swapping will need to store a pointer there: so in preparation for that, now define PAGE_MAPPING_FLAGS as the low two bits, including PAGE_MAPPING_KSM (always set along with PAGE_MAPPING_ANON, until some other use for the bit emerges). Declare page_rmapping(page) to return the pointer part of page->mapping, and page_anon_vma(page) to return the anon_vma pointer when that's what it is. Use these in a few appropriate places: notably, unuse_vma() has been testing page->mapping, but is better to be testing page_anon_vma() (cases may be added in which flag bits are set without any pointer).
