SubjectRe: [PATCH v6 03/11] mm, x86: Add support for eXclusive Page Frame Ownership (XPFO)
I think this patch needs to be split into the generic mm code, and
the x86 arch code at least.

Fitting these 10 variables into 5 arguments would require an awesome
compression scheme anyway :)

Overly long line.

It seems to me like we should simply direct to pure xpfo
implementations for the !HIGHMEM && XPFO case. - that is
just have the prototypes for kmap, kunmap and co in
linux/highmem.h and implement them in xpfo under those names.

Instead of sprinkling them around.

s/inited/initialized/g ?

default n is the default, so you can remove this line.
