mm: m(un)lock avoid ZERO_PAGE
I'm still reluctant to clutter __get_user_pages() with another flag, just to avoid touching ZERO_PAGE count in mlock(); though we can add that later if it shows up as an issue in practice. But when mlocking, we can test page->mapping slightly earlier, to avoid the potentially bouncy rescheduling of lock_page on ZERO_PAGE - mlock didn't lock_page in olden ZERO_PAGE days, so we might have regressed. And when munlocking, it turns out that FOLL_DUMP coincidentally does what's needed to avoid all updates to ZERO_PAGE, so use that here also. Plus add comment suggested by KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki.
