    I agree, but that's not my point.

    All I'm saying is that we probably don't want to give normal
    unprivileged usermode apps
    the capability to set the mapping to AS_UNEVICTABLE as anyone can then
    write an application
    that hogs memory without allowing the kernel to free it through memory reclaim.
