No. They both end up doing a lot of much fancier stuff. There are patches
in there that I may not be comfortable with, because they end up doing
things like totally re-doing the locking for some subsystem.

Yes, they end up re-doing _broken_ locking, but the point is that they are
not obvious. They are just "more careful" versions of the -mm tree.
