SubjectRe: [PATCH v4 0/8] Fix issues and factorize arm/arm64 capacity information code
Hi Greg,

I'm not sure what your plans are with this set. Are we targeting 4.12?

IMHO, if possible, it would be good to have this refactoring in now, so
that we can base further development on it for the next cycle.

Thanks,

- Juri
