The reason why i have split it as a separate change is because as a
separate change it would be easier to review & test for the people who
are already familiar with the rest of the series.

Another minor reason is that a separate patch will also make the life a
bit easier for some people who are back-porting this to kernels using
the older version of the cmd_db API.

The commit that changed the cmd_db API is not yet in mainline, but in
linux-next. I am not sure what is preferred in this case?
