But x86 isn't particularly interesting - it'd be useful to have a
flush_dcache_range() which actually works across other architectures anyway.

The memory technology device case is weird, give it a solution
such as "asm/memdev.h".

So they should probably have less misleading names, perchance including the
letter 'v' and the letter 'm' somewhere? And they should _certainly_ have
less misleading documentation. :)

Why? find_get_page says nothing about "page cache", but people
understand that is what it is used for.

The documention should be more specific, thats all.

Franks a lot,
