None of those patches are queued in any tree I can find.  It seems they were still getting comments.  I'd rather they come through an upstream tree instead of us carrying possibly incomplete patches.

Mel Gorman has posted another round of these patches.  Maybe this time they'll wind up in a tree somewhere:

The patches are in linux-next now via Andrew Morton's mm tree.  They should make their way to mainline in due time.
Comment 4 Josh Boyer 2012-10-10 08:21:23 EDT
Yesterday's rawhide commit contained the patch series.  They've also been queued up for 3.6 and 3.5 stable and should be in 3.6.2 and 3.5.7, respecitively.
