Subject[PATCH v10 02/25] mm: Return void from various readahead functions
Date
From: "Matthew Wilcox (Oracle)" <willy@infradead.org>

ondemand_readahead has two callers, neither of which use the return value.
That means that both ra_submit and __do_page_cache_readahead() can return
void, and we don't need to worry that a present page in the readahead
window causes us to return a smaller nr_pages than we ought to have.

Similarly, no caller uses the return value from force_page_cache_readahead().
