[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 160/167] drm/i915/userptr: Acquire the page lock around set_page_dirty()

[ Upstream commit aa56a292ce623734ddd30f52d73f527d1f3529b5 ]

set_page_dirty says:

	For pages with a mapping this should be done under the page lock
	for the benefit of asynchronous memory errors who prefer a
	consistent dirty state. This rule can be broken in some special
	cases, but should be better not to.

Under those rules, it is only safe for us to use the plain set_page_dirty
calls for shmemfs/anonymous memory. Userptr may be used with real
mappings and so needs to use the locked version (set_page_dirty_lock).
