    Why bypass -mm tree ?

    I think you planned to merge this via -mm tree and, then, posted patches
    to linux-mm with CC -mm guys.

    I think you posted 2011/09/16 at the last time, v10. But no further submission
    to gather acks/reviews from Mel, Johannes, Andrew, Hugh etc.. and no inclusion
    request to -mm or -next. _AND_, IIUC, at v10, the number of posted pathces was 6.
    Why now 8 ? Just because it's simple changes ?

    I don't have heavy concerns to the codes itself but this process as bypassing -mm
    or linux-next seems ugly.
