[PATCH] Direct Migration V9: Avoid writeback / page_migrate() method
Christoph Lameter [Wed, 1 Feb 2006 11:05:41 +0000 (03:05 -0800)]
Migrate a page with buffers without requiring writeback

This introduces a new address space operation migratepage() that may be used
by a filesystem to implement its own version of page migration.

A version is provided that migrates buffers attached to pages.  Some
filesystems (ext2, ext3, xfs) are modified to utilize this feature.

The swapper address space operation are modified so that a regular
migrate_page() will occur for anonymous pages without writeback (migrate_pages
forces every anonymous page to have a swap entry).
