Acked-by: Hugh Dickins <hugh@veritas.com>

(Looking at it, I see that we could argue that there ought to be a
need_resched() etc. check after your tlb_flush_mmu() in unmap_vmas,
in case it's spent a long while in there on some arches; but I don't
think we have the ZAP_BLOCK_SIZE tuned with any great precision, and
you'd at worst be doubling the latency there, so let's not worry
about it.  I write this merely in order to reserve myself an
"I told you so" if anyone ever notices increased latency ;)
