There's even a comment to that effect later on in the function:
Hmm, well spotted. But it wouldn't be so great if we now had to lock every
inspected page (and not just dirty pages), just to check the AS_ bit.

But I wonder if this is leftover from previous versions. Are the guest pages
even PageLRU currently? (and should they be, given how they can't be swapped
