Kernel test robot reported -4.2% regression of will-it-scale.per_thread_ops
due to commit "mm: introduce memfd_secret system call to create "secret"
memory areas".

The perf profile of the test indicated that the regression is caused by
page_is_secretmem() called from gup_pte_range() (inlined by gup_pgd_range):

 27.76  +2.5  30.23       perf-profile.children.cycles-pp.gup_pgd_range
  0.00  +3.2   3.19 ± 2%  perf-profile.children.cycles-pp.page_mapping
  0.00  +3.7   3.66 ± 2%  perf-profile.children.cycles-pp.page_is_secretmem

Further analysis showed that the slow down happens because neither
page_is_secretmem() nor page_mapping() are not inline and moreover,
multiple page flags checks in page_mapping() involve calling
compound_head() several times for the same page.

Make page_is_secretmem() inline and replace page_mapping() with page flag
checks that do not imply page-to-head conversion.
