Details

See https://lwn.net/Articles/548111/ about adding support for volatile page ranges.

We can tell the kernel about pages that can be dropped when low memory watermarks are hit and put various caches in there like image caches so the kernel can automatically determine when to drop caches.
Note these volatile ranges are not even landed in mainline yet.
