ksm: fix ksm swapin time optimization
The new anon-vma code, was suboptimal and it lead to erratic invocation of ksm_does_need_to_copy. That leads to host hangs or guest vnc lockup, or weird behavior. It's unclear why ksm_does_need_to_copy is unstable but the point is that when KSM is not in use, ksm_does_need_to_copy must never run or we bounce pages for no good reason. I suspect the same hangs will happen with KVM swaps. But this at least fixes the regression in the new-anon-vma code and it only let KSM bugs triggers when KSM is in use. The code in do_swap_page likely doesn't cope well with a not-swapcache, especially the memcg code.
