I think

-			switch (try_to_unmap(page, TTU_UNMAP)) {
+ 			switch (__try_to_unmap(page, TTU_UNMAP)) {

should be enough when your changes are adopted.  Because if the page
mmap mutex needs to be locked, we will have locked it here before
__try_to_unmap gets used.  

+               if (needs_page_mmap_mutex(page) &&
+                               i_mmap_mutex != &page->mapping->i_mmap_mutex) {
+                       if (i_mmap_mutex)
+                               mutex_unlock(i_mmap_mutex);
+                       i_mmap_mutex = &page->mapping->i_mmap_mutex;
+                       mutex_lock(i_mmap_mutex);
+               }
