This patch had some significant conflicts with the pagewalk patches:

mm-hugetlbfs-fix-rmapping-for-anonymous-hugepages-with-page_pgoff-v2.patch

mempolicy-apply-page-table-walker-on-queue_pages_range.patch
mm-add-pte_present-check-on-existing-hugetlb_entry-callbacks.patch
mm-pagewalkc-move-pte-null-check.patch

I resolved this by merging
mm-softdirty-clear-vm_softdirty-flag-inside-clear_refs_write-instead-of-clear_soft_dirty.patch
on top of the pagewalk patches as below - please carefully review.

I'm hoping we'll be able to get the pagewalk patches merged in 3.16-rc1
- we'll see what happens when the testing gets underway again.

Subject: mm: softdirty: clear VM_SOFTDIRTY flag inside clear_refs_write() instead of clear_soft_dirty()

clear_refs_write() is called earlier than clear_soft_dirty() and it is
more natural to clear VM_SOFTDIRTY (which belongs to VMA entry but not
PTEs) that early instead of clearing it a way deeper inside call chain.
