The related changes are in another series,
https://lists.ozlabs.org/pipermail/linuxppc-dev/2016-February/thread.html#138948

I would also like to keep the two core mm patches[1] in that series so that
it can go with the other related changes via powerpc tree. The reason to
send out them as separate patches is to get the correct feedback so that
it won't get lost in the large series.

Let me know if that is ok with you.
