Subject[PATCH 01/16] FS-Cache: Release page->private after failed readahead [try #3]
Date
The attached patch causes read_cache_pages() to release page-private data on a
page for which add_to_page_cache() fails or the filler function fails. This
permits pages with caching references associated with them to be cleaned up.

The invalidatepage() address space op is called (indirectly) to do the honours.
