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

This replaces ->readpages with a saner interface:
 - Return void instead of an ignored error code.
 - Pages are already in the page cache when ->readahead is called.
 - Implementation looks up the pages in the page cache instead of
   having them passed in a linked list.

+->readahead() unlocks the pages like ->readpage().

 ->readpages() populates the pagecache with the passed pages and starts
 I/O against them.  They come unlocked upon I/O completion.
