Not only that, if the anon_vma isn't used for file caches, but only for anonymous pages then the whole thing seems dubious when swap is disabled.

In addition to that, anon_vma apparently didn't solve the problem well, but instead of replacing it with something that does, more kludges are added on top of it. I got the feeling that there's some much more elegant solution waiting for someone to find it.
