It fails to build on x86-64 defconfig/allyesconfig/allmodconfig:

  mm/gup.c:1422:15: error: implicit declaration of function ‘pgd_devmap’ [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]

The PowerPC allnoconfig build broke as well:

/home/mingo/tip/mm/gup.c: In function '__gup_device_huge_pmd':
/home/mingo/tip/mm/gup.c:1319:2: error: implicit declaration of function 'pmd_pfn' [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]

Please send delta fixes, because I've already done many small readability edits to 
the patches.

Thanks,
