Subject: [rfc 01/10] Pageflags: Use an enum for the flags
Date: Fri, 29 Feb 2008 20:05:35 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20080301040620.029724488@sgi.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20080301040534.797979115@sgi.com>

[-- Attachment #1: pageflags-use-enum --]
[-- Type: text/plain, Size: 3047 bytes --]

Use an enum to ease the maintenance of page flags. This is going to change the
numbering from 0 to 18.
