7 Of course you can, you have the source. However, it appears that no one
8 has implemented that particular feature for you yet. Maybe it is because
9 they have better things to do that move 300KB of files from the kernel's
10 caches to a disk filesystem from where it will be loaded into the
11 kernel's caches. That's the key point, that you don't actually save
12 memory by moving the files to a disk unless you are REALLY low on memory,
13 and then you have bigger things to worry about.
