Current page struct is just like this
struct page {
unsigned long flags;
atomic_t _count;
atomic_t _mapcount;
union {
struct {
unsigned long private;
struct address_space *mapping;
};
#if NR_CPUS >= CONFIG_SPLIT_PTLOCK_CPUS
spinlock_t ptl;
#endif
};
pgoff_t index;
struct list_head lru;
#if defined(WANT_PAGE_VIRTUAL)
void *virtual;
#endif /* WANT_PAGE_VIRTUAL */
};
Most fields in the page structure is used for user page, to a core
slab page, these aren't touched at all.
So I think we should define a union
struct page {
unsigned long flags;
struct slab {
struct list_head list;
unsigned long colouroff;
void *s_mem;
unsigned int inuse;
kmem_bufctl_t free;
unsigned short nodeid;
};
};
