It's fine to use page private like this without incrementing the refcount,
and I can't find any problematic cases in EROFS like those fixed by commit
8e47a457321ca1a74ad194ab5dcbca764bc70731

So I think the new helpers are not for you, and that's fine.  They'll be
useful for other filesystems which are using page_private differently
from the way that you do.
