Subject: [PATCH v6 01/19] mm: Return void from various readahead functions

From: "Matthew Wilcox (Oracle)" <willy@...radead.org>

ondemand_readahead has two callers, neither of which use the return value.
That means that both ra_submit and __do_page_cache_readahead() can return
void, and we don't need to worry that a present page in the readahead
window causes us to return a smaller nr_pages than we ought to have.
