How so? The reason I wrote lruvec_holds_page_lru_lock the way I did is
that it is simply comparing the pointers held by the page and the
lruvec. It is never actually accessing any of the values, just the
pointers. As such we should be able to compare the two since the
lruvec is still locked and the the memcg and pgdat held by the lruvec
should not be changed. Likewise with the page pointers assuming the
values match.

Ah, I see the bug now. It isn't the lruvec_holds_page_lru_lock that
needs the LRU lock. This is an issue as a part of a merge conflict.
There should have been an rcu_read_lock added before
mem_cgroup_page_lruvec.
