Nope, that was what you /thought/ it was.

My debugging code has shown it to be something else,
lru_cache_add() is called for pages which are already
on the LRU list...

I know this because:
1) the boobytraps in rmqueue() and page_reclaim() never
trigger
2) the ->next->prev pointer is /consistent/ (this wouldn't
be the case after a list_del and being hauled through
rmqueue, etc...)

regards,

Rik
