    What about just shmem_read_page? It's not using the pagecache, so
    no need for the mapping or cache, and the _gfp really is just a hack
    because the old pagecache APIs didn't allow to pass the gfp flags.
    For a new API there's no need for that.

    This really shouldn't be in pagemap.h. For now probably in shmem_fs.h
