What about a harder race to hit like a page being on LRU list A when you
look up the lruvec, then it's removed and added to LRU list B by the
time you get the lock? At that point, you are holding a lock on the
wrong LRU list. I think you need to check not just that the page
is still PageLRU but also still on the same LRU list.
