Well, the original patch was NAK by Christoph because he wanted
to see the complete vm_fault_t migration picture in a patch series
where Matthew mentioned to send one patch per driver through
different maintainers tree to upstream the changes. This discussion
went on into two separate mail threads.

At this point we are almost done with vm_fault_t migration in all drivers/fs
except 3 patches and all the changes will be available in 4.19-rc1. We followed
one patch per driver mechanism and I believe we not are going to adopt other
mechanism (patch series) to upstream these vm_fault_t patches.

This particular patch is struggling for more than 3 months now.

Christoph, would you still like to maintain NAK on this patch ? :-)
