    Every userspace or page cache page will be in an object
    though. Could we do the pointer on a per object (mapping,
    anon vma, ...) basis?

    Kernel pages are not using all of their struct page entries,
    so we could overload a field.

    It all depends on how much we really care about not growing
    struct page :)

    What is important? What you want to be true, or what is true?
