Since the commit 8f182270dfec ("mm/swap.c: flush lru pvecs on compound
page arrival") THP would not stay in pagevec anymore.  So the
optimization made by commit d965432234db ("thp: increase
split_huge_page() success rate") doesn't make sense anymore, which tries
to unpin munlocked THPs from pagevec by draining pagevec.

Draining lru cache before isolating THP in mlock path is also unnecessary.
b676b293fb48 ("mm, thp: fix mapped pages avoiding unevictable list on mlock")
added it and 9a73f61bdb8a ("thp, mlock: do not mlock PTE-mapped file huge
pages") accidentally carried it over after the above optimization went in.
