    I'm now writing *lazy* lru handing via per-cpu struct like pagevec.
    It seems works well (but not so fast as expected on 2cpu box....)
    I need more tests but it's not so bad to share the logic at this stage.

    I added 3 patches on to this set. (my old set need bug fix.)
    ==
    [1] patches/page_count.patch ....get_page()/put_page() via page_cgroup.
    [2] patches/lazy_lru_free.patch ....free page_cgroup from LRU in lazy way.
    [3] patches/lazy_lru_add.patch ....add page_cgroup to LRU in lazy way.

    3 patches will follow this mail.

    Because of speculative radix-tree lookup, page_count patch seems a bit
    difficult.

    Anyway, I'll make this patch readable and post again.

    Thanks,
    -Kame
