Subject[PATCH v9 10/25] mm: Put readahead pages in cache earlier
Date
From: "Matthew Wilcox (Oracle)" <willy@infradead.org>

When populating the page cache for readahead, mappings that use
->readpages must populate the page cache themselves as the pages are
passed on a linked list which would normally be used for the page cache's
LRU. For mappings that use ->readpage or the upcoming ->readahead method,
we can put the pages into the page cache as soon as they're allocated,
which solves a race between readahead and direct IO. It also lets us
remove the gfp argument from read_pages().

Use the new readahead_page() API to implement the repeated calls to
->readpage(), just like most filesystems will.
