We can easily do the testing and the general idea sounds solid to me.

I see three major things we need to clean up here.
1. The licensing, you are moving from BSD/MIT to GPL2.
2. Don't add any new overhead to the TTM pool, especially allocating a
private object per page is a no-go.
3. What are you doing with the reclaim stuff and why?
4. Keeping the documentation would be nice to have.

Christian.
