[PATCH 40/54] drm/i915: Mark "page-backed" dmabuf as being shrinkable

We currently assume that if we import a dmabuf, it is not backed by
pages (we assume it exists in video memory on a foriegn device).
However, some dmabuf will be backed by ordinary struct pages (e.g. vgem)
and as such they may be shrinkable from direct reclaim. Since commit
09ea0dfbf972 ("dma-buf: make map_atomic and map function pointers
optional") drivers do not need to supply a kmap() vfunc if they have no
convenient access to the physical backing page. We can use that
information to differentiate dmabuf that are likely to be backed by
struct page and so suitable for including in our shrinkable set.
