clang reports the following compile warning.

In file included from mm/vmscan.c:56:
./include/linux/swapops.h:327:22: warning:
	section attribute is specified on redeclared variable [-Wsection]
extern atomic_long_t num_poisoned_pages __read_mostly;
                     ^
./include/linux/mm.h:2585:22: note: previous declaration is here
extern atomic_long_t num_poisoned_pages;
                     ^

Let's use __read_mostly everywhere.

No objection to the patch, of course, but I'm wondering if it's (1) the 
only such clang compile warning for mm/, and (2) if the re-declaration in 
mm.h could be avoided by including swapops.h?

It is the only one I recall seeing in mm/ while testing the clang/retpoline
changes with ToT clang 7.0.0, but then I didn't pay too close attention.

Another alternative would be to remove the extern fom swapops.h and have
swapops.h include mm.h instead. I chose the least invasive change since
I didn't want to risk breaking some other build (after all, maybe there
was a reason for declaring num_poisoned_pages in two include files).
