page_mapping must avoid slub pages
Nicolas Ferre reports oops from flush_dcache_page() on ARM when using SLUB: which reuses page->mapping as page->slab. The page_mapping() function, used by ARM and PA-RISC flush_dcache_page() implementations, must not confuse SLUB pages with those which have page->mapping set.
