Subjectlinux-next: manual merge of the mm tree with the slab tree
Hi all,

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


between commit:

71aeb554a274 ("mm: slab: fix comment for __assume_kmalloc_alignment")

from the slab tree and commits:

3f0cd9a623ec ("mm: make minimum slab alignment a runtime property")
78c0585fdbac ("mm-make-minimum-slab-alignment-a-runtime-property-fix")

from the mm tree.

I fixed it up (see below) 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.
