Both Viresh's and Valentin's patch looks lovely to me too. I couldn't
spot anything wrong with them either. One suggestion I was thinking
off is can we add better comments to this code (atleast label fast
path vs slow path) ?

Also, annotate the conditions for the fast/slow path with
likely/unlikely since fast path is the common case? so like:

if (unlikely(sd)) {
/* Fast path, common case */
...
} else if (...) {
/* Slow path */
}


thanks,

- Joel
