    The file operations from filemap_xip are only effective if the struct
    file_operations vector refers to them (see ext2_xip_file_operations in
    fs/ext2/file.c as example). In oder to function proper, the
    corresponding address_space_operations vector needs to provide an
    implementation of get_xip_page (see ext2_get_xip_page in
    fs/ext2/xip.c). Both vectors are per inode, one can chose to have XIP
    for individual files in a file system.
