Coming in late here, but the problem with "page info map" is that free
space is also page info (how much free space on each page), so "page
info map" isn't very descriptive.  "page status" or "page state" might
make more sense, but even then, free space is a kind of page
status/state.  What is happening is that broadening the name to cover
both visibility and freeze state also encompasses free space.
