mm: swap: use smp_mb__after_atomic() to order LRU bit set

Memory barrier is needed after setting LRU bit, but smp_mb() is too
strong.  Some architectures, i.e.  x86, imply memory barrier with atomic
operations, so replacing it with smp_mb__after_atomic() sounds better,
which is nop on strong ordered machines, and full memory barriers on
others.  With this change the vm-scalability cases would perform better on
x86, I saw total 6% improvement with this patch and previous inline fix.

The test data (lru-file-readtwice throughput) against v5.6-rc4:
	mainline	w/ inline fix	w/ both (adding this)
	150MB		154MB		159MB
