Reviewed-by: Mike Kravetz <mike.kravetz@oracle.com>

My reason for previously asking my Reviewed-by be removed is because I did
not realize the suboptimal behavior for private mappings would be addressed
in a subsequent patch.  That should be OK as nobody should be using just
part of this series.  If we need to respin, it might be worth noting this in
the commit message.  Something like:
With file_region coalescing disabled, private mappings will have one
file_region for each page in the mapping.  This suboptimal behavior will
be addressed in a later patch in this series.
