I've just pushed this to the staging tree (with one minor fix). 

If you're working on memory management code, be aware that I'm planning
a whole lot more p2m overhaul this week, including a wholesale reversal
of most of the interface changes in 21940:e7afe98afd43 (which turn out
not to have been necessary).  I'll post an RFC patch series in the next
few days once I've had a chance to smoke-test things a bit.

If you have any outstanding p2m patches, email me ASAP and I'll work out
whether I can rebase on top of them or fold them into my patchqueue
somehow.   If you're thinking of starting on any p2m work I recommend
waiting until at least next week.
