Hm, i've seen many of them (for months literally) and you were
definitely Cc:-ed to all of them. The new bits (which i think you
are referring to) are not included in this series - only the old

I even asked you about them a month ago, whether you'd want to pick
Tejun's bits up into -mm because they are clearly generic VM patches
and they seemed to be falling between the cracks for v2.6.31. I had
two small bits of x86 relevant percpu patches which i'd gladly have
bounced over to you.

Btw., it will be a lot of work for Tejun to go through another 3
months with a patch-set of this magnitude:

170 files changed, 653 insertions(+), 553 deletions(-)

and i suspect it will cause a fair amount of linux-next conflict
resolution overhead as well. So Tejun, if you can get it tested
please consider targeting it for this merge window still. I can
help out with some -tip testig if you want.
