Milton made the very sensible comment that while adding on_each_cpu() in the
arch generic code and removing the two arch specific instances from tile and arm
in separate patches is good for review, it will break bisect.

He suggested I squash them into a single commit when it goes in.

Since you picked the patch set into linux-mm, will now be a good time for that?

Thanks,
Gilad
