it's your baby really and i dont want to interfere in any negative 
way. The patches look fairly complete and you did all the hard work 
with them already.

Can help out with review and testing (as always) but i suspect it's 
more appropriate for -mm to carry them in the end, because of the MM 
and tree-wide impact, and because the fine differences between those 
APIs will only be truly visible on non-x86.

( There's also Tejun's latest improvements of the dynamic allocator
  that he made based on your feedback - are those in any tree yet? )
