    The semantic that would benefit my work patterns the most would not be
    "immediate zapping" - I have 2G of RAM, so often there's no memory pressure,
    and often a 'find' will be followed by another similar 'find' that will hit a
    lot of the same dentries and inodes, so may as well save them if we can.
    Flagging it as "the first to be heaved over the side the instant there *is*
    pressure" would suit just fine.

    Or is that the semantic you actually meant?
