[PATCH RFC 2/9] list: Support list head not in object for list_lru

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


In future patches, there will be a need to keep track of objects with
list_lru where the list_head is not in the object (will be in struct
page). Since list_lru automatically determines the node id from the
list_head, this will fail when using struct page.

So create a new function in list_lru, list_lru_add_node(), that allows
the node id of the item to be passed in. Otherwise it behaves exactly
like list_lru_add().
