Yuyang, a few about the status, I've changed a little on the algorithm, the
latest code is at

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/boqun/linux.git arr-rfc-wip

but unfortunately, I haven't got time to rework the comments and documents, so
be aware of this inconsistency.

Feel free to ask me any question, and I will try to send out a fresh spin in next month.

Regards,
Boqun
