I've tagged it for stable release.
So, it can go in now, or just wait until -rc1 and go in later.

The patch in there which is by me changes one line simply cleans up a patch which
went in during the 4.19 merge cycle. So it would be nice to have it
added now before v4.19 gets released.
The other two patches are trivial and just remove dead code.
I rate them all as non-critical, but nice-to-have-in-v4.19.

If you disagree I'm absolutely fine to wait with all of them
for the next merge window.
