Sorry. I usually only apply patches from certain people like
David. For some reason I did not see David's comment on your
additional patch. I can miss such things because I don't have the
time to follow everything. So I promise not to report about
problems in prepatches any more.

The further GFP_BUFFER check removal patch is just fine and I did in
fact mistakedly forget to include it in my patch set, sorry everyone,
I have been to busy to acknowledge it over the past day or so.
