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.

Comment 2 Josh Boyer 2012-08-21 15:07:15 UTC
Mel Gorman has posted another round of these patches.  Maybe this time they'll wind up in a tree somewhere:

Comment 3 Josh Boyer 2012-09-07 15:43:09 UTC
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 12:21:23 UTC
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.
