int generic_pipe_buf_steal(struct pipe_inode_info
*pipe, struct pipe_buffer *buf);
- the pipe that the buffer belongs to

This function attempts to steal the struct page attached to buf. If successful, this function returns 0 and returns with the page locked. The caller may then reuse the page for whatever he wishes; the typical use is insertion into a different file page cache.
