mm: mmu_notifier: fix freed page still mapped in secondary MMU

commit 3ad3d90 upstream.

mmu_notifier_release() is called when the process is exiting.  It will
delete all the mmu notifiers.  But at this time the page belonging to the
process is still present in page tables and is present on the LRU list, so
this race will happen:

      CPU 0                 CPU 1
mmu_notifier_release:    try_to_unmap:
   hlist_del_init_rcu(&mn->hlist);
                            ptep_clear_flush_notify:
                                  mmu nofifler not found
                            free page  !!!!!!
                            /*
                             * At the point, the page has been
                             * freed, but it is still mapped in
                             * the secondary MMU.
                             */

  mn->ops->release(mn, mm);

Then the box is not stable and sometimes we can get this bug:

[  738.075923] BUG: Bad page state in process migrate-perf  pfn:03bec
[  738.075931] page:ffffea00000efb00 count:0 mapcount:0 mapping:          (null) index:0x8076
[  738.075936] page flags: 0x20000000000014(referenced|dirty)

The same issue is present in mmu_notifier_unregister().

We can call ->release before deleting the notifier to ensure the page has
been unmapped from the secondary MMU before it is freed.
