For some reason this patch is missing its headers and doesn't apply.

I fixed that up and it still doesn't apply, because there are pending
changes in this area in -mm.

Normally I'd fix that up, but this one is looking a bit non-trivial, so
I'm afraid I'm going to ask you to redo the patches against

Alternatively, we could just hold them off until 2.6.34. Wait until
2.6.33-rc1 is released then resend the patch series based on
2.6.33-rc1. Perhaps this is a better approach, as we are now in the
2.6.33 merge window and it's a bit late to be introducing new material.

Either way, please do ensure that the next patch series retains all the
acked-by:'s which people have sent.
