Just a nitpick, but since replace_page() is being moved, could you
specify that in the change log. Something like:

"Hence, replace_page() is moved from ksm.c into memory.c and its static
attribute is removed."

I like to see in the change log "move x to y" when that is actually
done, because it is hard to see if anything actually changed when code
is moved. Ideally it is best to move code in one patch and make the
change in another. If you do cut another version of this patch set,
could you do that. This alone is not enough to require a new release.

Thanks,
