[PATCH] shmem_populate: avoid an useless check, and some comments

Either shmem_getpage returns a failure, or it found a page, or it was told
it couldn't do any I/O.  So it's useless to check nonblock in the else
branch.  We could add a BUG() there but I preferred to comment the
offending function.

This was taken out from one Ingo Molnar's old patch I'm resurrecting.
