Hi Shutemov:
1. I am confuse that why insert_page() drop the PageAnon, insert_pfn() donot drop PageAnon?

2. 
remap_vmalloc_range() -> vm_insert_page()->insert_page() -> inc_mm_counter_fast(mm, MM_FILEPAGES);

so, in this scenario, this vmalloc page maybe not sure be a page cache, why increase the MM_FILEPAGES ?
