[PATCH] Direct Migration V9: Avoid writeback / page_migrate() method
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).
