This looks sane to me.

I'm going to ignore it in this thread, and assume that it gets sent as
a patch separately, ok?

It would be good to have more acks on it.

Also, separately, John Haxby kind of implied that the LibreOffice
regression on i386 is already fixed by commit f4cb767d76cf ("mm: fix
new crash in unmapped_area_topdown()").

Or was that a separate issue?
