This set of patches was awesome but also pretty large and touched some
nontrivial parts, so it's not just a simple matter of merging them

I merged a handful of these patches to my own private 3.14.x tree where
they work wonderfully, and some have already appeared in the latest
stable-3.14.21. Greg also said that he has more in the queue. :)

The one I have so far punted on due to the filesystem dependencies is
2457aec63745e235bcafb7ef312b182d8682f0fc aka: "mm: non-atomically mark
page accessed during page cache allocation where possible" - that would
be really nice to have.
