    I considered this, too[1]. However I checked for existing usages of
    force_page_cache_readahead() noticed they just ignore the return value
    like I did in my patch, so I followed existing convention for this
    function. I didn't find any suggestion in Documentation/CodingStyle
    for this.

    Thanks for looking at this.
