Subjectmadvise on file pages

Could someone inform as to what is the behavior when madvise DONTNEED is
called on pages that are mmap'd from local files mapped with MAP_SHARED,
i.e. they share the same page that the file cache does. In such cases, can
madvise be made to release specific pages in the file cache by mmap-ing the
relevant file segment ?
