I've read over the discussion of patch #5 a few times.

And it seems to me that, at a minimum, a few things still need to
be resolved:

1) More perf data added to commit message.

2) Whether invalidate_range_start() and invalidate_range_end() must
be paired.

Etc. So I am marking this series "Changes Requested".
