* ntfs_unmap_page - release a page that was mapped using ntfs_map_page()
* @page: the page to release
* Unpin, unmap and release a page that was obtained from ntfs_map_page().
static inline void ntfs_unmap_page(struct page *page)
* ntfs_map_page - map a page into accessible memory, reading it if necessary
* @mapping: address space for which to obtain the page
* @index: index into the page cache for @mapping of the page to map
* Read a page from the page cache of the address space @mapping at position
* @index, where @index is in units of PAGE_CACHE_SIZE, and not in bytes.
* If the page is not in memory it is loaded from disk first using the readpage
* method defined in the address space operations of @mapping and the page is
* added to the page cache of @mapping in the process.
* If the page belongs to an mst protected attribute and it is marked as such
* in its ntfs inode (NInoMstProtected()) the mst fixups are applied but no
* error checking is performed. This means the caller has to verify whether
* the ntfs record(s) contained in the page are valid or not using one of the
* ntfs_is_XXXX_record{,p}() macros, where XXXX is the record type you are
* expecting to see. (For details of the macros, see fs/ntfs/layout.h.)
* If the page is in high memory it is mapped into memory directly addressible
* by the kernel.
* Finally the page count is incremented, thus pinning the page into place.
* The above means that page_address(page) can be used on all pages obtained
* with ntfs_map_page() to get the kernel virtual address of the page.
* When finished with the page, the caller has to call ntfs_unmap_page() to
* unpin, unmap and release the page.
* Note this does not grant exclusive access. If such is desired, the caller
* must provide it independently of the ntfs_{un}map_page() calls by using
* a {rw_}semaphore or other means of serialization. A spin lock cannot be
* used as ntfs_map_page() can block.
* The unlocked and uptodate page is returned on success or an encoded error
* on failure. Caller has to test for error using the IS_ERR() macro on the
* return value. If that evaluates to 'true', the negative error code can be
* obtained using PTR_ERR() on the return value of ntfs_map_page().
