The word 'offset' is used ambiguously to mean 'byte offset within
a page', 'byte offset from the start of the file' and 'page offset
from the start of the file'.  Use 'index' to mean 'page offset
from the start of the file' throughout the readahead code.

And: use 'count' to mean 'number of pages'.  Since the patch also changes
req_size to req_count.

I'm casting about for a nice place in the code, to put your above note...and
there isn't one. But would it be terrible to just put a short comment
block at the top of this file, just so we have it somewhere? It's pretty
cool to settle on a consistent terminology, so backing it up with "yes, we
actually mean it" documentation would be even better.

One minor note below, but no bugs spotted, and this clarifies the code a bit, so:

One more tiny thing: seeing as how this patch is also changing "size" to "count",
maybe it should also change lookahead_size to lookahead_count.
