At first, I planned to merge features below into v1.4.4.

 - vmalloc translation support for PPC32 (by Suzuki K. Poulose)
 - LZO Compression Support (by HATAYAMA Daisuke)
 - sadump: check if given cpu is online in per-cpu related helper functions
   (by HATAYAMA Daisuke)

However, the first one is being discussed and the schedule is not clear.
So, I would like to postpone the feature for v1.4.5 and start testing 
the other two for v1.4.4. 

If I can start testing now, I will release v1.4.4 in this month.
