SubjectRe: [RFC] Tracking mlocked pages and moving them off the LRU
Hmmm.. I have had no time to test this one yet but I think this should 
work. It uses the delayed method and a new page flag PageMlocked() with
different semantics. Fix for page migration is also included.
Patch avoids to put new anonymous mlocked pages on the LRU. Maybe the same
could be done for new pagecache pages?

I still need a solution for the problem of not having enough page flag
bits on i386 NUMA.
