    Subject[PATCH 0/3] SPARSEMEM: pfn_to_nid implementation
    I have reviewed the uses of pfn_to_nid() in 2.6.14-mm2.  The only
    user of the non-init pfn_to_nid is the one in check_pte_range().
    So we simply need to profide a non-early pfn_to_nid() implementation
    for SPARSEMEM. Whilst reviewing these interfaces I found two
    alternative dependant interfaces which are not used.

    Following this message are three patches:

    kvaddr_to_nid-not-used-in-common-code: removes the unused interface

    pfn_to_pgdat-not-used-in-common-code: removes the unused interface

    sparse-provide-pfn_to_nid: provides pfn_to_nid() for SPARSEMEM.
    Note that this implmentation assumes the pfn has been validated
    prior to use. The only intree user of this call does this.
    We perhaps need to make this part of the signature for this function.

    Mike, how does this look to you?
