    Hmmm you're right. Is your security work going into the next -mm? If
    so, I'll just re-base this cleanup patch on that ... at the very least
    I want to get rid of afs_dir_put_page(). Also, did you consider
    passing the key pointer directly and modifying the readpage actor to
    simply cast the pointer back, like read_mapping_page(mapping, page,
    (struct file *)key)? It seems like a waste to allocate a whole file
    struct on the stack just for the ->private field.

    Andrew in the mean time just disregard this patch.
