    tmpfs - Too aggressive during paging
    * tmpfs was being a bit too aggressive during paging.  We were trying to
      bypass all the way to PQ_CACHE as well as unconditionally age the
      buffers.  This caused the pageout daemon to thrash on any underlying
      tmpfs pages that were being re-referenced quickly.
    * Change the defaults to (1) Not try to flush all the way to PQ_CACHE
      unless the system is in an extreme low memory condition.  And (2) to
      only B_AGE the buffer when the system is paging and otherwise allow
      it to cycle normally.
