SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/6] fuse: allocate req->pages[] dynamically
Hi Miklos,

So far as no objections appeared, I'll go ahead and replace fuse
req->page with req->pagevec. It will point to an array of structs:

struct page_vec {
struct page *pv_page;
unsigned int pv_len;
unsigned int pv_offset;

instead of 'struct page *' as it used to be. It seems to be what you
suggested in one of your comments. Are you OK about it?
