That would be great! I can't speak for others but -mm poses a problem
for testing your patchset because it is so bleeding. Let me know if
you take the plunge on a 2.6.23.x backport; I'd really appreciate it.

Is anyone else interested in consuming a 2.6.23.x backport of Rik's
patchset? If so please speak up.
