These have to be a marked asmlinkage. What's the reason you have
the syscall in this header anyway?

So do you have an estimate for the number of users here yet?
Adding two more slab caches that are unused for 99% of the users
might not be the best choice if there's no strong need.

Inline but not static seems strange..

We already discussed the coding style issue, but anyway, why aren't
these three separate syscalls?

What protects vfspag->tokens?

Please linwrap after 80 chars.

Shouldn't vfs_pag_get hanlde a NULL argument instead?

What happened to the suggestion to make the pag code optional? It's
really easy to stub it out properly and most people don't need it.
