    Because It's Done That Way (tm). The simplest way to fix it would
    probably be switching to slabs instead of using raw pages.

    Linus, do you have any objections against it? If it's OK for you
    I'll roll a patch and submit it.
    Another question: we still have a race in rename() on UNIX
    filsystems (d_invalidate() stuff). It's pretty minor, so... Would you
    accept it or it would better wait till 2.3? I do not dare to submit the
    FAT-related piece - it's (a) too serious chunk and (b) I'm still not
    satisfied with testing it got here.
    Ob2.3: do you have any plans regarding the time when it will
    begin? As in: late Spring/Fall/next year/go to hell/other ;-)
