Not really true any more - I only base -mm patches on linux-next
patches when they must be based that way due to some known dependency.
I can certainly handle MM patches which are based on linux-next. Such
an arrangement is going to make life awkward for Michal's
auto-maintained git tree of the -mm MM patches
Maybe I could merge down_write_killable into -mm's main MM section then
knock it out of my copy of linux-next, so everything is seamless for
mm.git. I've done that before.
But it's all a bit of a pain - it would be simpler to keep
down_write_killable in the same tree as the patches which depend on it.
Michal, how about this?
mm.git currently takes the patches between
Can you change it to also take the patches between
That way I can do
then everything you have should apply and run OK.
