    Subject2.4.10 VM: what avoids from having lots of unwriteable inactive pages

    Linus,

    What avoids us from having a lot of unfreeable (eg mapped by ptes) pages
    on the inactive list ?

    Since we don't move those pages to the active list at shrink_cache(), I
    see that we rely on swap_out() to deactivate pte's and make pages on the
    inactive list freeable.

    Is that right ?
