Why is it necessary to assume that one filesystem block == one buffer?
Is it for atomicity, efficiency, or something else?
By definition, really - each filesystem block has it's own state and
it's own disk mapping and so we need something to carry that
Well, for block sizes > PAGE_SIZE, you can just duplicate the mapping
information (with an offset-in-block bit field) in each page's struct
page. But I see from your other posts that there are atomicity and
performance reasons as well.
