mm: fix invalidate_complete_page2() lock ordering
commit ec4d9f626d5908b6052c2973f37992f1db52e967 upstream. In fuzzing with trinity, lockdep protested "possible irq lock inversion dependency detected" when isolate_lru_page() reenabled interrupts while still holding the supposedly irq-safe tree_lock: invalidate_inode_pages2 invalidate_complete_page2 spin_lock_irq(&mapping->tree_lock) clear_page_mlock isolate_lru_page spin_unlock_irq(&zone->lru_lock) isolate_lru_page() is correct to enable interrupts unconditionally: invalidate_complete_page2() is incorrect to call clear_page_mlock() while holding tree_lock, which is supposed to nest inside lru_lock. Both truncate_complete_page() and invalidate_complete_page() call clear_page_mlock() before taking tree_lock to remove page from radix_tree. I guess invalidate_complete_page2() preferred to test PageDirty (again) under tree_lock before committing to the munlock; but since the page has already been unmapped, its state is already somewhat inconsistent, and no worse if clear_page_mlock() moved up.
