I've been working on that the past couple of days.  As always when
reviewing a patch series, I find things that need to be done differently.
And spot bugs (one pre-existing, one that I introduced).

You may not have noticed; I've sent out a couple of patch series to
linux-mm already this week:

plus this to linux-block:

this patch series inadvertently breaks DAX and I need to debug that:

i also need to figure out what breaks for Hugh here (I may already have
fixed it, but I need to do more testing):

So the iomap chunks are next, and then I have another mm series in mind.
After all that is done, I'll have almost all the prep work merged for
5.10 and we can do the actual THP patchset in 5.11.  I'm sitting on
around 80 patches at this point although it varies from day to day
depending how I resplit things.
