[PATCH] [errata] locked page handling in shrink_cache

please ignore previous patch ...


Whenever the shrink_cache wakes up after a laundered page in unlocked, it should move that page to the end of inactive list so that the page can be freed immediately and shrink_cache dosen't have to wait for complete list scan before freeing this page.

The patch is created against standard redhat 7.1 distribution 2.4.16 kernel. Let me know if I need to create it for a different kernel release.

regards Amol
