SubjectRe: [PATCHv7 2.6.35-rc3-tip 0/11] Uprobes Patches:
Hi Ingo, 

I have addressed all comments to the uprobes patchset. We have few
todos (most of them are features over the current code) which I plan
to work in the immediate future.

So would it be possible for this patchset to be picked into the tip
tree. Getting these patches merged into the tip tree would help in
getting more comments/feedback and testing.

Thanks and Regards
