The logic in attach_page_buffers and  __clear_page_buffers are quite
paired, but

1. they are located in different files.

2. attach_page_buffers is implemented in buffer_head.h, so it could be
   used by other files. But __clear_page_buffers is static function in
   buffer.c and other potential users can't call the function, md-bitmap
   even copied the function.

So, introduce the new attach/clear_page_private to replace them. With
the new pair of function, we will remove the usage of attach_page_buffers
and  __clear_page_buffers in next patches. Thanks for the new names from
Christoph Hellwig.

I like this in general, but the name clear_page_private suggests that
this might be the inverse operation of set_page_private, which it is
not. So maybe this can be renamed to detach_page_private to more
clearly indicate that it pairs with attach_page_private?

I don't think this will read well when added to the API documentation.
Try this:

/**
 * attach_page_private - Attach private data to a page.
 * @page: Page to attach data to.
 * @data: Data to attach to page.
 *
 * Attaching private data to a page increments the page's reference count.
 * The data must be detached before the page will be freed.
 */

Seems to me that the opposite of "attach" is "detach", not "clear".

/**
 * detach_page_private - Detach private data from a page.
 * @page: Page to detach data from.
 *
 * Removes the data that was previously attached to the page and decrements
 * the refcount on the page.
 *
 * Return: Data that was attached to the page.

Or "remove", perhaps...

Actually, "detach" is better - neither "clear" nor "remove" imply "... and give
me what used to be attached there", as this thing is doing.

Yes, the new name is better, thank you!

Ok, seems we have reached the agreement about the new name ;-), will 
follow the instruction.
