ohhh...can you please avoid using the old __put_user_pages_dirty()
function? I thought I'd caught things early enough to get away with
the rename and deletion of that. You could either:

a) open code an implementation of vaddr_put_pages_dirty_lock() that
doesn't call any of the *put_user_pages_dirty*() variants, or

b) include my first patch ("") are part of your series, or

c) base this on Andrews's tree, which already has merged in my first patch.


thanks,
