Hi Andrew,

If you're feeling like -mm is getting too stable, then you might
consider giving these patches a spin? (unless anyone else raises
an objection).

Ben thought I should get moving with them soon.

Not much change from last time. A bit of ppc64 input from Ben,
and some rmap.c input from Hugh. Boots and runs on a few machines
I have lying around here.

The only remaining places that *test* PageReserved are swsusp, a
trivial useage in drivers/char/agp/amd64-agp.c, and arch/ code.

Most of the arch code is just reserved memory reporting, which
isn't very interesting and could easily be removed. Some arch users
are a bit more subtle, however they *should not* break, because all
the places that set and clear PageReserved are basically intact.

What is the desired fix look like for arch users?
