Thanks Nathan,

In the mean time, all this stuff is in Linux next. I would really like
to merge it for v3.17. I expect the merge window will open next weekend.
Let me know once you've been able to do the migration test. I can hold
off sending Linus a pull request until wk2 of the merge window if you
need the extra time.
