How come these kinds of things go into the x86 tree? Can't they
be sent to other maintainer first (probably Andrew, in the case
of random -mm stuff).

OK, it's pretty trivial stuff, but just on principle I can't see
an advantage, and only disadvantages to doing this (and also I
see the vmalloc change clashed with the vmalloc rewrite in -mm).
