mm/swapfile: fix data races in try_to_unuse()



si->inuse_pages could be accessed concurrently as noticed by KCSAN,

 write to 0xffff98b00ebd04dc of 4 bytes by task 82262 on cpu 92:

The plain reads in try_to_unuse() are outside si->lock critical section
which result in data races that could be dangerous to be used in a loop.
Fix them by adding READ_ONCE().
