Subject[RESEND][PATCH 5/6] Provide a filesystem-specific sync'able page bit
Date
From
Because Christoph asked so nicely, I'm resending this patch with a wider
distribution. The patch currently resides in the -mm kernels. It is being used
by the in-kernel AFS filesystem and by the NFS caching patches that haven't
yet been passed to akpm.

---

The attached patch provides a filesystem-specific page bit that a filesystem
can synchronise upon. This can be used, for example, by a netfs to synchronise
with CacheFS writing its pages to disc.
