    Ok, sounds good. As long as they at least start converging...

    Great, thanks, will do.

    Sure. But if the other mm changes in -mm were not going forward it
    would be a little silly to get page_mkwrite to work there only to have
    to rewrite it in order to get it merged...

    If Linus really is going to release .14 in the next few days,
    page_mkwrite is never going to make it into .15 anyway, no matter
    what... But .16 would be a realistic target I would have thought which
    seems to fit in nicely with the plans for -mm. (-:
