Hirofumi has been working on just that for the last couple of weeks (his
usual attention to detail) and there are still a few days to go on it. We
would appreciate it if somebody else does the hammering for a generic
version, so we can continue to concentrate on getting the core hooks
righ, proving out the corner cases, and proving the benefit through
benchmarks :)

The next round of Tux3 review patches will be two separate patch series,
one for writeback core hooks, and one for page forking core hooks. These
will be against Hirofumi's mirror at Github, to keep the kernel.org git
tree history clean and unrebased.
