Hi greg

Yes sorry I did not explain very well.

the akpm tree in linux-next as two patches:
  8dca515 mm: new pfn_mkwrite same as page_mkwrite for VM_PFNMAP
  dac1bd2 dax: use pfn_mkwrite to update c/mtime + freeze protection

Now these patches will hit Linus tree in 4.1 merge window.
The second patch is tagged with stable@ CC, because it fixes DAX
which was introduced in 4.0. It depends on the 1st patch.

However the first patch is not tagged stable@ because it will not
apply at all to 4.0. This is because it patches mm/memory.c which
will completely change in 4.1. This is why I sent this special
patch which has the same exact title, and does exactly the same
as the 1st patch but on the 4.0 Kernel.

So when you encounter this 2nd patch with the Stable@ tag. I think
the best is to just ignore it, and wait for complains, which will
most probably not come because DAX is pretty experimental.
(But if we do pull it we will need this here)
