Patch looks nice. Unfortunately filemap.c has changed rather a lot
since 4.5. Can you please redo the patch some time?

And a more informative changelog would be appropriate, although it's
all pretty obvious. I don't know what "pagecache iterator work" is
and I doubt if many other readers do either, so some illumination there
wouldn't hurt.
