[patch] mm: memcontrol: rewrite uncharge API fix - clear page->mapping in migration

From: Johannes Weiner
Date: Mon Jul 28 2014 - 13:10:40 EST

The page->mapping reset in migration was conditionalized so that a
later uncharge could use PageAnon() to figure out the page type. But
after "mm: memcontrol: rewrite uncharge API fix - double migration",
the old page is uncharged directly in mem_cgroup_migrate() and so this
is no longer necessary.

Once all fixups are folded into the "rewrite uncharge API" patch,
there will be no reason and no explanation for this change anymore, so
revert it.
