Hi, Greg,

I see a problem with "    memcg: add dirty page accounting infrastructure".

The reject is

 enum mem_cgroup_write_page_stat_item {
        MEMCG_NR_FILE_MAPPED, /* # of pages charged as file rss */
+       MEMCG_NR_FILE_DIRTY, /* # of dirty pages in page cache */
+       MEMCG_NR_FILE_WRITEBACK, /* # of pages under writeback */
+       MEMCG_NR_FILE_UNSTABLE_NFS, /* # of NFS unstable pages */

I don't see mem_cgroup_write_page_stat_item in memcontrol.h. Is this
based on top of Kame's cleanup.

I am working off of mmotm 28 sept 2010 16:13.

	Three Cheers,
