SubjectRe: [PATCHv6 0/3] rdmacg: IB/core: rdma controller support
Hi Tejun, Doug,

I would like to know direction from you on how do we intent to merge this code.
So that I generate next patch v7 against right tree.

Few options that comes to me are:
1. Shall we merge this code from Doug's linux-rdma tree, where there
are no merge conflicts in cgroup?
2. Shall we merge this as two separate patches one from cgroup side
from Tejun's cgroups tree as kernel support and 2nd from linux-rdma
for IB core changes to make use of those features?
3. Some other options that you have in mind.

I was thinking of (1) as that has the least churn in development, test
and merge efforts.
