Ok, who should I expect to take this series from? I think the last
batch came through Andrew. The kernel/smp.c file seems to be one of
those "unclear maintenance rules" one. The git statistics for the last
12 months seem to be

Andrew Morton <akpm@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> (commit_signer:4/9=44%)
Peter Zijlstra <peterz@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> (commit_signer:2/9=22%)
Milton Miller <miltonm@xxxxxxx> (commit_signer:2/9=22%)
Tejun Heo <tj@xxxxxxxxxx> (commit_signer:2/9=22%)
Ingo Molnar <mingo@xxxxxxx> (commit_signer:2/9=22%)

according to Should I just take these directly?
