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

This replaces ->readpages with a saner interface:
 - Return void instead of an ignored error code.
 - Page cache is already populated with locked pages when ->readahead
   is called.
 - New arguments can be passed to the implementation without changing
   all the filesystems that use a common helper function like
   mpage_readahead().
