Okay... How about the attached then?

I've also discarded the patch that just moves towards completely getting rid
of PG_fscache and adjusted the third patch that takes a ref on the page for
the duration to handle the change of names.

Speaking of the ref-taking patch, is the one I posted yesterday the sort of
thing you wanted for that? I wonder if I should drop the ref in the unlock
function, though doing it afterwards does allow for the possibility of using a
pagevec to do mass-release.

Well, that's the current principle, but I was wondering if the alias was
causing confusion.

netfs: Rename unlock_page_fscache() and move wait_on_page_fscache()

Rename unlock_page_fscache() to unlock_page_private_2() and change the
references to PG_fscache to PG_private_2 also. This makes it look more
generic and doesn't mix the terminology.

Fix the kdoc comment on the above as the wake up mechanism doesn't wake up
all the sleepers. Note the example usage case for the function in
conjunction with the cache also.

Place unlock_page_fscache() as an alias in linux/netfs.h.

Move wait_on_page_fscache() to linux/netfs.h.

[v2: Implement suggestion by Linus to move the wait function into netfs.h]
