comment Memory page - virtual or physical and relation to data types allocation?
Is the term memory page always used in the context of swapping? Meaning, If I'm in the kernel, dealing with physical memory addresses it isn't sensible to think about pages?

user-space to kernel-space transmissions (e.g. arguments of syscalls) is in the Linux kernel in terms of long or unsigned long is this also historical thing? Pointer as a type is available in the kernel, still can't understand the benefit.
