Apologies, I wasn't trying to make you feel bad. But I did get an old
version of the patch. A much more recent one is here, which I have
added to the commit log:

https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/5108281/

For my part, I feel bad that I didn't realize much earlier that parallel
SRCU callbacks were needed. As it was, someone had to tell me late
last year.

But yes, it would be really cool to have lockless VMA lookup!!!

Thanx, Paul
