Hi Ingo and Thomas-

I think this series is in good enough shape that you should consider
making a topic branch (x86/umip?) for it so that it can soak in -next
and further development can be done incrementally. In the unlikely
event that a major problem shows up, you could skip the pull request
to Linus for a cycle.
