The parens above are at least redundant (if not harmful). Everywhere
else in a similar context too.

Also kerneldoc comments document function arguments too as a rule, so
please do that here and wherever you use kerneldoc comments in the
patchset.

Apart from the above I'm not entirely sure why you need the changes in
patch [09/13] to go in a separate patch. All of them are new code
going into the file created by this patch, so why not to put them
here?
