No worries.

I had added your git tree as a remote and checked out the for-jens branch.  This patch conflicts with some of the changes in that patch, so I could use a pointer as to which base this new patch applies to.

If it's already in some branch in linux-bcache, I can just use it there, and that's even more convenient.

Just so I know what to look for, what does that behavior look like?  I/O stops going and procs get stuck in disk sleep, maybe?
