Sorry for my late reply because of a holiday.

I noticed that your test was based on [patch v8 RESEND 4/4], could you please
test it based on [patch v9 4/4]? Because the [patch v8 RESEND 4/4] had a compile
error, and that had been fixed in [patch v9 4/4].

Or i improve patch log and comment in the code for [patch v9 4/4] based on your
comments, and post the series again, also provide my test result about the series. 
Do you think about?
