SubjectRe: [PATCH] Cleanup and kernelify shrinker registration (rc5-mm2)

Wrong copy. This is the one which actually compiles reiser4.

==
I can never remember what the function to register to receive VM pressure
is called. I have to trace down from __alloc_pages() to find it.

It's called "set_shrinker()", and it needs Your Help.

New version:
1) Don't hide struct shrinker. It contains no magic.
2) Don't allocate "struct shrinker". It's not helpful.
3) Call them "register_shrinker" and "unregister_shrinker".
4) Call the function "shrink" not "shrinker".
5) Rename "nr_to_scan" argument to "nr_to_free".
6) Reduce the 17 lines of waffly comments to 10, and document the -1 return.

Comments:
1) The comment in reiserfs4 makes me a little queasy.
2) The wrapper code in xfs might no longer be needed.
3) The placing in the x86-64 "hot function list" for seems a little
unlikely. Clearly, Andi was testing if anyone was paying attention.
