SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH 1/9] include/linux/pagemap.h: introduce set/clear_fs_page_private
Why not attach_page_private and clear_page_private as that conveys
the use case a little better?

Can you add kerneldoc comments describing them, including why we
take the refernces? Also what is the point of the return value
of set_fs_page_private?
