Hi Andrey,

Nice. I like it so much that I immediately want to tweak it. :)

Here, I think the zone_lru_lock() is actually a nice way to add
a touch of clarity at the call sites. How about, see below:

Instead of removing that function, let's change it, and add another
(since you have two cases: either a page* or a pgdat* is available),
and move it to where it can compile, like this:
