    I'm not convinced it's the _fastest way_. You're effectively
    invalidating all the work done under drivers/staging so you might end up
    in review limbo with your shiny new code...

    AFAICT, your best bet is to first clean up zcache under driver/staging
    and get that promoted under mm/zcache.c. You can then move on to the
    more controversial ramster and figure out where to put the clustering
    code, etc.
