Fun, so what does shmem_alloc_page do?

Does loopback over tmpfs use a different allocation path?

My original plan was to merge them incrementally, but Andrew is
right that we should give the whole set as much testing as
possible.

I have done all the cleanups Andrew asked and fixed the bugs
that I found after that merge/cleanup. Your bug is the one
I still need to fix before giving Andrew a whole new set of
split LRU patches to merge.

(afterwards, I will go incremental fixes only - the cleanups
he asked for were just too big to do as incrementals)
