That would be fine with me. But could you send me the patch for a
final sanity check before sending it off to Marcelo?
Also, do not send it the linux/mm.h changes. Due to the multiple
memory attribute issue, I'm not sure the VM_NONCACHED and
VM_WRITECOMBINED are such good ideas (besides, I don't think they're
really needed anymore).

Matt was working on this. Is that who you were referring two? Yes,
there is no reason this patch shouldn't be in 2.4.xx as far as I'm
