These have been baking in linux-mm and linux-next:
* [PATCH v3 0/6] Kernel huge I/O mapping support
https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/3/3/589
* [PATCH v4 0/7] mtrr, mm, x86: Enhance MTRR checks for huge I/O mapping
https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/3/24/1056

I don't think this made it into a subsystem tree yet:
* [PATCH v8 0/7] Support Write-Through mapping on x86
https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/2/24/773

I guess we could target 4.2 for both the WT series and
pmem patches that support the new ioremap_wt() function.
