tmpfs: fix shared mempolicy leak

This fixes a regression in 3.7-rc, which has since gone into stable.

Commit 00442ad0 ("mempolicy: fix a memory corruption by refcount
imbalance in alloc_pages_vma()") changed get_vma_policy() to raise the
refcount on a shmem shared mempolicy; whereas shmem_alloc_page() went
on expecting alloc_page_vma() to drop the refcount it had acquired.
This deserves a rework: but for now fix the leak in shmem_alloc_page().

Hugh: shmem_swapin() did not need a fix, but surely it's clearer to use
the same refcounting there as in shmem_alloc_page(), delete its onstack
mempolicy, and the strange mpol_cond_copy() and __mpol_cond_copy() -
those were invented to let swapin_readahead() make an unknown number of
calls to alloc_pages_vma() with one mempolicy; but since 00442ad0,
alloc_pages_vma() has kept refcount in balance, so now no problem.
