Will that work with rmap15d? The code seems to support only min
and borrow parameters. Correct me if I'm wrong. This is what it
looks like currently:

# cat /proc/sys/vm/pagecache
1 3 20
# mem | grep Cache
Cached: 4569128 kB
SwapCached: 829668 kB
ActiveCache: 136728 kB

AIX vmtune -P is equivalent to the Linux cache-max, but cache-max
is not implemented.
