Subject[PATCH 13/14] FS-Cache: Release page->private in failed readahead [try #9]
Date

The attached patch causes read_cache_pages() to release page-private data on a
page for which add_to_page_cache() fails or the filler function fails. This
permits pages with caching references associated with them to be cleaned up.

Further changes [try #9] that have been made:

(*) The try_to_release_page() is called instead of calling the releasepage()
op directly.

(*) The page is locked before try_to_release_page() is called.

(*) The call to try_to_release_page() and page_cache_release() have been
abstracted out into a helper function as this bit of code occurs twice..
