Since the tmem patches seem to be settling down, I was waiting a bit to
see if they get into an upstreamable state for this next merge window
(though that's getting pretty tight at this point). But if we can set up
a git branch based on 2.6.32 we should be able to easily merge it into
all the various pvops branches. Are there any tmem changes needed
between .32 and later kernels?
