Hi Vadim,

We are now in the RC cycle for 4.16. Do you consider these changes to be
"fixes" that need to be included in 4.16? It was difficult to tell from
the commit messages how severe some of the possible issues were.

I'm concerned about the level of testing seen by the previous patch
series if we are getting these changes so soon after they were merged.
Can you comment on why these are being discovered now - and how
confident are we in the drivers with these changes applied?
