I'm not familar with orangefs. In my opinion, generally all temporary
page->private access (r/w) should be properly protected by some locks,
most of time I think it could be at least page lock since .migratepage,
.invalidatepage, .releasepage, .. (such paths) are already called with
page locked (honestly I'm interested in this topic, please correct me
if I'm wrong).

I agree that the suggested modification is more clear and easy to read.

Thanks,
Gao Xiang
