Subject[PATCH 00/12] Transparent huge page cache support on tmpfs
Transparent huge page support on tmpfs.

Please review.

Intro
-----
The goal of the project is to enable transparent huge page support on
tmpfs.

The whole patchset is based on Kirill's latest patchset about Transparent
huge page cache v6. As the link below:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/9/23/230

To further proof that the proposed changes are functional we try enable
this feature for a more complex file system tmpfs besides ramfs. tmpfs
comes with swap support which make is more usable.

Design overview
---------------

We share the exact same design from Kirill's work. However, due to the
complexity of tmpfs, we do a lot of refactoring on the implementation.


Known problem
---------------

We do try to make it work with swapping, but currently there are still
some problem with it. I am debbugging it.

However, it would be great to have more opinions about the design in
the current patchset and where we should be heading to.
