    SubjectRe: [PATCH] double flush_page_to_ram
       From: Andrea Arcangeli <>

    Fine with me if Marcelo drops it, but I guess sparc/m68k/mips users
    won't like not be able to use 2.4 kernels anymore unless they first
    rewrite the entere cache flushing in the middle of a stable series.
    If you don't drop it in late 2.4 then my suggestion looks still a nice
    common code cleanup and it's functional equivalent to the current
    2.4.19pre8 code, so it cannot go wrong.

    I only suggest doing it for 2.5, repeat, only 2.5

    And yes adding the flush_page_to_ram call in filemap_nopage was a bug
    fix in 2.4.10. I believe it was from one of the SH port maintainers.
