Ok, I checked the patchset [1] and I think it is nice that those two (devm and HMM)
get unified.
I think it will make things easier when we have to change things for the memory-hotplug.
Actually, I think that after [2], all hot-adding memory will be handled in
devm_memremap_pages.

What I do not see is why the patch did not make it to further RCs.

Thanks
