    It's there in the TODO list. It is easy to implement. I can do that
    in the next revision. We are re-using the LRU lock, since the
    isolate_pages callback is called under the zone's LRU lock.

    I remember that we discussed having one limit, but we can come up
    with a configuration parameter to do it. I'll do that in the
    next release.

    I'll do that for the res_counters_infra patch. Although I had used
    res_counter, the hooks in mm_struct earlier (http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/2/19/12).

    A lot of the code for the reclaim logic and the meta_page is yours.
    Please do identify patches where you would like to see your
    signed-off-by and where you think the entire patch is completely
    yours.
