There are!  Several of them in this very patch-set.  For example, the
deferred_list in compound pages, the page tables, ZONE_DEVICE pages, and
vmalloc pages.  Sure, it would have been possible to do some of those
without this rearrangement, but each thing you added to the old struct
page blew up the complexity that someone would have to paw through next
time *they* wanted to add something to struct page.  Now they can look
through and see what each owner uses this storage for, and see where
bits are.

There are some other places in the kernel where we could benefit.
For example, here's a patch I suggested (against an earlier version
of this patchset).  Al demanded performance numbers, which I haven't
collected yet, so it's not part of this submission.
