SubjectRe: [PATCH mm-unstable RFC 00/26] mm: support __HAVE_ARCH_PTE_SWP_EXCLUSIVE on all architectures with swap PTEs
Hi, David,

What is the opposite of exclusive here? Shared or inclusive? I prefer
pte_swp_mkshared() or pte_swp_mkinclusive() rather than
pte_swp_clear_exclusive(). Existing examples: dirty/clean, young/old
...
