mm: use refcounts for page_lock_anon_vma()

Convert page_lock_anon_vma() over to use refcounts.  This is done to
prepare for the conversion of anon_vma from spinlock to mutex.

Sadly this inceases the cost of page_lock_anon_vma() from one to two
atomics, a follow up patch addresses this, lets keep that simple for now.
