* tiny-shmem.c: simple shmemfs and tmpfs using ramfs code
* Matt Mackall <> January, 2004
* derived from mm/shmem.c and fs/ramfs/inode.c
* This is intended for small system where the benefits of the full
* shmem code (swap-backed and resource-limited) are outweighed by
* their complexity. On systems without swap this code should be
* effectively equivalent, but much lighter weight.
