Subject: Re: [PATCH 00/10] mm: adjust get_user_pages* functions to explicitly

Patch number 6 in this series (which touches drivers I co-maintain) is 
Acked-by: Christian König <christian.koenig@....com>.

In general looks like a very nice cleanup to me, but I'm not enlightened 
enough to full judge.

Regards,
Christian.
