     vm_page_rename — move a page


     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <vm/vm.h>
     #include <vm/vm_page.h>

     vm_page_rename(vm_page_t m, vm_object_t new_object, vm_pindex_t new_pindex);


     The vm_page_rename() function removes a page from one object, and adds it to another at the
     given page index.  The page is added to the given object, and is removed from the object
     that is currently associated with.  If the page is currently on the cache queue it will be
     deactivated unless it is wired or unmanaged, in which case the deactivation will fail.  The
     entire page is marked as dirty after the move.

     The arguments to vm_page_rename() are:

     m           The page to move.

     new_object  The object the page should be inserted into.

     new_pindex  The page index into new_object at which the new page should be inserted.
