In a x86 arch, where is the page descriptor of a page frame stored?


Hi,
I notice in the kernel source code that the "page" variable is used to name the page descriptor pointer. This variable is used in comparison statements, like if(page < highmem_page_start){ }
So, is a page descriptor stored starting from the first memory location of the page frame that it describes?
Thanks
