Hi Andrew,

What is your plan for this patch? In the ~akpm/mmotm/series, I see a
comment of waiting for ack from Oleg.

Here was a feedback from Oleg:
https://www.spinics.net/lists/kernel/msg2972154.html

where he said: "Ok, I think the patch is fine".

Is it enough or should I convince him to send a "real" ack?

Thanks,
Andrei
