Thanks, Stephen!

I wonder if it's better to update these 2 commits in the mm tree to avoid
conflicts?

Basically split your fix into two and merge it into mm commits.
The last chunk in the patch should be merged into "mm/memcg: remove incorrect comment".
And the rest into "mm: move lruvec stats update functions to vmstat.h".

Andrew, what do you think?

Thanks!
