Subject[patch] #include <linux/pagemap.h> in fs/partitions/check.h
Hi Marcelo,

fs/partitions/check.h uses page_cache_release that is

#define page_cache_release(x) __free_page(x)

in linux/pagemap.h but check.h doesn't include this file. This resulted in
the following compile error:

The fix is simple:

You only think this is a free country. Like the US the UK spends a lot of
time explaining its a free country because its a police state.
