* Application no longer needs these pages. If the pages are dirty,

* these pages later if no one else has touched them in the meantime,
* although we could add these pages to a global reuse list for
* refill_inactive to pick up before reclaiming other pages.
*
* NB: This interface discards data rather than pushes it out to swap,
* as some implementations do. This has performance implications for
* applications like large transactional databases which want to discard
* pages in anonymous maps after committing to backing store the data
* that was kept in them. There is no reason to write this data out to
* the swap area if the application is discarding it.
*
* An interface that causes the system to free clean pages and flush
* dirty pages is already available as msync(MS_INVALIDATE).

/*
* The madvise(2) system call.
*
* Applications can use madvise() to advise the kernel how it should
* handle paging I/O in this VM area. The idea is to help the kernel
* use appropriate read-ahead and caching techniques. The information
* provided is advisory only, and can be safely disregarded by the
* kernel without affecting the correct operation of the application.
*
* behavior values:
* MADV_NORMAL - the default behavior is to read clusters. This
* results in some read-ahead and read-behind.
* MADV_RANDOM - the system should read the minimum amount of data
* on any access, since it is unlikely that the appli-
* cation will need more than what it asks for.
* MADV_SEQUENTIAL - pages in the given range will probably be accessed
* once, so they can be aggressively read ahead, and
* can be freed soon after they are accessed.
* MADV_WILLNEED - the application is notifying the system to read
* some pages ahead.
* MADV_DONTNEED - the application is finished with the given range,
* so the kernel can free resources associated with it.
* MADV_REMOVE - the application wants to free up the given range of
* pages and associated backing store.
*
* return values:
* zero - success
* -EINVAL - start + len < 0, start is not page-aligned,
* "behavior" is not a valid value, or application
* is attempting to release locked or shared pages.
* -ENOMEM - addresses in the specified range are not currently
* mapped, or are outside the AS of the process.
* -EIO - an I/O error occurred while paging in data.
* -EBADF - map exists, but area maps something that isn't a file.
* -EAGAIN - a kernel resource was temporarily unavailable.
