Subject[PATCH 1/3] mm: document zone device struct page reserved fields
Date
Struct page for ZONE_DEVICE private pages uses the reserved fields when
anonymous pages are migrated to device private memory. This is so
the page->mapping and page->index fields are preserved and the page can
be migrated back to system memory.
Document this in comments so it is more clear.
