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.
