Yeah, I am fine with this reverting. If people all agree with this I can
post patch to revert this. In fact I am eagerer to revert below commit
since it's a littble bit confusing after crash_notes crossing 2
pages bug is fixed. Below commit is a work around fix , but it's too much.
I am willing to hear people's idea.
