Right, I'll move the copy outside, thanks for spotting this.

Indeed these names are much better than using the default ones. At the
meantime I'll rebase to linux-next/akpm. Sorry it's always not easy for me to
find the right branch...

OK, I'll keep it for clearness.

Side question: Mike, do you know why we need this lock_nested()? Could the src
lock be taken due to any reason already? It confused me when I read the chunk.

Definitely, I'll fix.
