Thanks Willy and Hirofumi for the quick fix! I've tested the change,
and it works fine.

Since removing rw_page would have to wait till 4.15, can we go with this
fix for 4.14? I confirmed that Matthew's patch  applies cleanly to
4.14-rc1. This patch can also be applied to stable kernels.
Matthew, can you resend this patch with description?
