Patches 4-6 make me the most nervous, since they have the potential of
really changing our resource allocation (hopefully for the better) on
many platforms.

Linus, can you check them out and see if you're ok with the direction?

Patches 7-9 seem like they've recieved some review from Alex and
Kenji-san, but I don't see acks or reviewed-bys on them.

Alex and Kenji-san, are you ok with them assuming the previous patches
or something like them go upstream?

Thanks,
