SubjectRe: [PATCH 3.2.0-rc1 0/3] Used Memory Meter pseudo-device and related changes in MM

You explained why we shouldn't merge neither you nor android notification patches.
Many embedded developers tried to merge their own patch and claimed "Hey! my patch
is completely different from another one". That said, their patches can't be used
each other use case, just for them.

Systemwide global notification itself is not bad idea. But we definitely choose
just one implementation. thus, you need to get agree with other embedded people.

Again, lowmemorykiller.c should be dropped too.

If you spent a few time to read past discuttion, you should have understand your fomula
is broken and unacceptable. Think, mlocked (or pinning by other way) cache can't be
discarded. And, When system is under swap thrashing, userland notification is
useless. I don't think you tested w/ swap environment heavily.

While you are getting stuck to make nokia specific feature, I'm recommending you
maintain your local patch yourself.
