This needs much more extensive documentation. This is a userspace API,
and it shouldn't refer to a kernelspace API. Instead, explain what it
means from a user perspective. Also, how does this relate to the cache
buffer flags?

These things are tricky, so it is worth spending some time on writing
good documentation.
