Rather than requiring the caller set this, shouldn't we just
allow it? Especially given there is only one non-page user?

while (page_nr < spd_pages)
- page_cache_release(spd->pages[page_nr++]);
+ if (spd->spd_release)
+ spd->spd_release(spd, page_nr++);
+ else
+ page_cache_release(spd->pages[page_nr++]);
