How can we implement an LRU cache using just a single container i.e. map or unordered_map?

Expected operations:
1. find(key_t) - find a certain value in cache
2. insert(key_t, value_t) - insert a new value to the cache

impletement LRU class which extends LinkedHashMap and override removeEldestEntry like this:

class LRULinkedHashMap<K,V> extends LinkedHashMap<K,V>{  
    private int capacity;  

    LRULinkedHashMap(int capacity){  

    protected boolean removeEldestEntry(Map.Entry<K, V> eldest){   
        return size() > capacity;

I am developing a program in C and I want to lock some memory pages in cache, particularly in the core specific level (i.e. level 1). As far as I know the C libraries do not provide an interface to do that so I guess
that there must be some particular directives in gcc to do so. I am interested in locking both a struct and some arbitrary variables.

Could any one provide any information for that? If so it would be very helpful.

I had a couple *.iso disks in my CD/DVD drive recently. I had looked at the images, but did not install. Now, i have a software update prompt and when I go to install, I am asked to put the two iso's in the drive. If I cancel the request and try to continue with the updates, it fails to complete them.

My google efforts have failed to produce a solution to the problem. How do I clean this up so that I can get back to regular updates?
