ksm: remove redundancies when merging page
There is no need for replace_page() to calculate a write-protected prot vm_page_prot must already be write-protected for an anonymous page (see mm/memory.c do_anonymous_page() for similar reliance on vm_page_prot). There is no need for try_to_merge_one_page() to get_page and put_page on newpage and oldpage: in every case we already hold a reference to each of them. But some instinct makes me move try_to_merge_one_page()'s unlock_page of oldpage down after replace_page(): that doesn't increase contention on the ksm page, and makes thinking about the transition easier.
