Subject: [PATCH v2 4/8] mm: Improve comment on page->mapping
Date: Wed, 20 Dec 2017 07:55:48 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20171220155552.15884-5-willy@infradead.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20171220155552.15884-1-willy@infradead.org>

From: Matthew Wilcox <mawilcox@microsoft.com>

The comment on page->mapping is terse, and out of date (it does not
mention the possibility of PAGE_MAPPING_MOVABLE).  Instead, point
the interested reader to page-flags.h where there is a much better
comment.
