Yuk! its there.

I actually wanted to refer to the 'swap notify patch'. Please see patch titled:
'ramzswap: Eliminate stale data from compressed memory (v2)'
(http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/982232)

This patch got 3 Acks: Pekka, Linus and Nigel.

(Minchan, please always reply to the patch your are referring to)

Thanks,
Nitin
