vm part 2

Ben LaHaise

I'm working on an overhaul of the vm page aging and reclaim code. The ultimate goal is to make the page cache somewhat more functional by improving the abilities of address_spaces to push pages out of memory. So I'm interested in talking about this and the VFS changes that are being proposed for things like delayed allocation and such. Most of this stuff is still way up in the air, but at the very least I'll be able to talk about where the kernel's mm subsystem currently is in 2.4 and where we're going.
