mm: clarify the radix_tree exceptional cases
Make the radix_tree exceptional cases, mostly in filemap.c, clearer. It's hard to devise a suitable snappy name that illuminates the use by shmem/tmpfs for swap, while keeping filemap/pagecache/radix_tree generality. And akpm points out that /* radix_tree_deref_retry(page) */ comments look like calls that have been commented out for unknown reason. Skirt the naming difficulty by rearranging these blocks to handle the transient radix_tree_deref_retry(page) case first; then just explain the remaining shmem/tmpfs swap case in a comment.
