mm: retire GUP WARN_ON_ONCE that outlived its usefulness
Trinity is now hitting the WARN_ON_ONCE we added in v3.15 commit cda540ace6a1 ("mm: get_user_pages(write,force) refuse to COW in shared areas"). The warning has served its purpose, nobody was harmed by that change, so just remove the warning to generate less noise from Trinity. Which reminds me of the comment I wrongly left behind with that commit (but was spotted at the time by Kirill), which has since moved into a separate function, and become even more obscure: delete it.
