Hi Andrew,

Today's linux-next merge of the akpm tree got a conflict in
mm/page-writeback.c between commit 6c14ae1e92c7 ("writeback: dirty
position control") from the writeback tree and commit
"mm/page-writeback.c: make determine_dirtyable_memory static again" from
the akpm tree.

Just context (I think).  I fixed it up (see below) and can carry the fix
as necessary.
