    Right, in same thread, but it ends up with:

    [PATCH 1/2] ksm: take dirty bit as reference to avoid volatile pages...
    [PATCH] mmu_notifier, kvm: Introduce dirty bit...
    [PATCH 2/2] ksm: take dirty bit as reference to avoid volatile pages...

    Not a big deal, but also easy to fix up ;)
