[RFC] mm:add zero_page _mapcount when mapped into user space

From: Wang, Yalin
Date: Tue Dec 02 2014 - 04:17:44 EST

This patch add/dec zero_page's _mapcount to make sure
the mapcount is correct for zero_page,
so that when read from /proc/kpagecount, zero_page's
mapcount is also correct, userspace process like procrank can
calculate PSS correctly.
