Thanks for updating the doc. Looks good to me. I just guess you wanted
to make the doc a full kerneldoc and start it as /**

Other than that
Acked-by: Michal Hocko <mhocko@xxxxxxxx>

Just wondering, is there any specific reason to not consider the patch
for stable trees? While not critical, pushing some hotpaths into slower
mode is quite annoying. I cannot say this would be visible but it is
certainly an unintended behavior and the patch is reasonably safe to
backport so I would include it.
