Sorry, my last email was bad.

Splitting patches into logical parts is a bit tricky. Let me try
explain better.

Every patch should sort of make sense on its own. In the original code
it's using GFP_ATOMIC but that's because the original API was bad and
we had no choice. In the 1/1 patch we're using GFP_ATOMIC explicitly
by choice and it's wrong. In patch 2/2 we fix this problem but we
shouldn't introduce bad code even if we fix it in later patches.
ok thanks
