iomap: Revert "fs/iomap.c: get/put the page in iomap_page_create/release()"
This reverts commit 61c6de667263184125d5ca75e894fcad632b0dd3. The reverted commit added page reference counting to iomap page structures that are used to track block size < page size state. This was supposed to align the code with page migration page accounting assumptions, but what it has done instead is break XFS filesystems. Every fstests run I've done on sub-page block size XFS filesystems has since picking up this commit 2 days ago has failed with bad page state errors such as: # ./run_check.sh "-m rmapbt=1,reflink=1 -i sparse=1 -b size=1k" "generic/038" ....

The failures are from anyway that frees pages and empties the per-cpu page magazines, so it's not a predictable failure or an easy to debug failure. generic/038 is a reliable reproducer of this problem - it has a 9 in 10 failure rate on one of my test machines. Failure on other machines have been at random points in fstests runs but every run has ended up tripping this problem. Hence generic/038 was used to bisect the failure because it was the most reliable failure. It is too close to the 4.20 release (not to mention holidays) to try to diagnose, fix and test the underlying cause of the problem, so reverting the commit is the only option we have right now. The revert has been tested against a current tot 4.20-rc7+ kernel across multiple machines running sub-page block size XFs filesystems and none of the bad page state failures have been seen.
