to wait for it to finish if it is.
+When releasepage() is being implemented, a special FS-Cache function exists to
+manage the heuristics of coping with vmscan trying to eject pages, which may
+conflict with the cache trying to write pages to the cache (which may itself
+need to allocate memory):
+
+ bool fscache_maybe_release_page(struct fscache_cookie *cookie,

+
+This takes the netfs cookie, and the page and gfp arguments as supplied to
+releasepage(). It will return false if the page cannot be released yet for
+some reason and if it returns true, the page has been uncached and can now be
+released.
+
+To make a page available for release, this function may wait for an outstanding
+storage request to complete, or it may attempt to cancel the storage request -
+in which case the page will not be stored in the cache this time.
