Subjectlinux-next: manual merge of the tip tree with Linus' tree
Hi all,

Today's linux-next merge of the tip tree got a conflict in:


between commit:

d70f2a14b72a ("include/linux/sched/mm.h: uninline mmdrop_async(), etc")

from Linus' tree and commit:

306e060435d7 ("membarrier: Document scheduler barrier requirements")

from the tip tree.

I fixed it up (I used the former version ofinclude/linux/sched/mm.h
and adde the following merge fix patch) and can carry the fix as
necessary. This is now fixed as far as linux-next is concerned, but any
non trivial conflicts should be mentioned to your upstream maintainer
when your tree is submitted for merging. You may also want to consider
cooperating with the maintainer of the conflicting tree to minimise any
particularly complex conflicts.
