I know you have briefly talked about code sharing already.

While I agree that sharing with MADV_FREE is maybe a stretch, I
applied these patches and compared the pageout and the cold page table
functions, and they are line for line the same EXCEPT for 2-3 lines at
the very end, where one reclaims and the other deactivates. It would
be good to share here, it shouldn't be hard or result in fragile code.

Something like int madvise_cold_or_pageout_range(..., bool pageout)?
