    page_mkwrite?? No, never heard of it round here, you must be mistaken ;)

    But seriously, Andrew dropped it from 2.6.13-rc5-mm1, for expedient reasons:
    - Dropped cachefs and the cachefs-for-AFS patches. These get in the way of
    memory management testing a bit, and they're being redone anyway.

    So Andrew's 2.6.13-rc4-mm1 directory should contain its last public state
    (by which time I'd fixed up those various things I'd found to be broken).

    But David may have redone a lot since then, I don't know: he's the one
    to ask. (And I'm afraid I've done my best to make the old patch not
    apply to current -mm.)
