I have a stupid question. I'm not sure whether there is reduplication
to put both "page" and "zone" parameter in mem_cgroup_page_lruvec(),
for I noticed that the "struct zone *zone" parameter are usually from
page_zone(page) in most cases. I think that the semantics of this function
is to grab the lruvec the page belongs to. So will it be ok if we pass
only "page" as the parameter, which I think would be cleaner? Please
fix me if I missed something.
