When handling a page fault, we drop mmap_sem to start async readahead so
that we don't block on IO submission with mmap_sem held.  However
there's no point to drop mmap_sem in case readahead is disabled. Handle
that case to avoid pointless dropping of mmap_sem and retrying the
fault. This was actually reported to block mlockall(MCL_CURRENT)
indefinitely.

Fixes: 6b4c9f446981 ("filemap: drop the mmap_sem for all blocking operations")

Andrew, could you please pick up this patch? Minchan also tripped over this
bug...
