SubjectRe: [PATCH] double flush_page_to_ram
   From: Andrea Arcangeli <>
Date: Thu, 9 May 2002 15:44:44 +0200

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.
