I intend to post user for those in next couple weeks for 5.2 HMM bits.
So user for this (CLEAR/UNMAP/SOFTDIRTY) will definitly materialize in
time for 5.2.

ACKS AMD/RADEON https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/2/1/395
ACKS RDMA https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/12/6/1473

For KVM Andrea Arcangeli seems to like the whole idea to restore the
change_pte optimization but i have not got ACK from Radim or Paolo,
however given the small performance improvement figure i get with it
i do not see while they would not ACK.
