Subject[PATCH 11/12] maps4: add /proc/kpageflags interface
Date
From: Matt Mackall <mpm@selenic.com>

This makes a subset of physical page flags available to userspace. Together
with /proc/pid/kpagemap, this allows tracking of a wide variety of VM behaviors.

Exported flags are decoupled from the kernel's internal flags. This
allows us to reorder flag bits, and synthesize any bits that get
redefined in terms of other bits.
