Hi Paolo,

could you please clarify what needs to be done to get this merged? In
particular, are you OK with my comment above or do we need to do
something with it (e.g. get back to the 'logarythmic search' from v2)?

In kvm/queue I can see only 'x86/hyper-v: rename ipi_arg_{ex,non_ex}
structures' patch from this series applied.

Thanks,

Vitaly
