    tcache: Fix __tcache_reclaim_page() wrong return value conversion

    Function tcache_page_tree_delete() returns pointer to struct page.
    We can't convert it to variable of bool type "as is", because they
    have different sizes. As all of struct pages are in kernel memory,
    their addresses are above PAGE_OFFSET, i.e. 0xffff880000000000.
    When such number is converted to bool, it becomes always 0. So,
    the algorhythm does not work as expected. Fix that.

    Fixes: ba2ea161f25b "mm/tcache: use lockless lookups in tcache's page tree"
