The largest patch, fix patch #2, looks good to me and fixes a real bug.
Patch #1 and #3 also look good to me (assuming the runtime overhead
added by patch #3 is OK to you):

Reviewed-by: Ingo Molnar <>

(I suspect patch #1 and patch #2 should also get a Cc: stable.)

Patch #4 is too large to review IMO: it should be split up into as many patches as
practically possible. That will also help bisectability, should anything break.

Before applying these patches please fix changelog and code comment spelling.

But it's all good stuff AFAICS!
