Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 1/5] mm: add numa node symlink for memory section in
	sysfs

Thank you for ACKing, David.

S390 guys, I cc'ed you on this patch because I heard a rumour
that your memory sections may belong to more than one NUMA node?
Is that true? If so, how would you like me to handle that
situation?

Any comments on this patch series would be appreciated.

Thanks.
