I reply here as the patch series lacks of a cover letter, as already
Sakamoto-san mentioned.

I like the patches in general. It's a great effort for the long-time
PITA. I already replied one minor thing I stumbled on. But the whole
changes are specific to ca0132, so there is no big danger by the patch
series itself per se.

However, one thing to be fixed is the style you took in the series,
"put some changes commented out for the next patch". I guess you made
it in that way for ease of splitting patches. But of course it's
messy when you follow the patch history as a reader.

So please clean up them, move the new code to the new patch, and
resubmit as v3. And, please give also a proper subject prefix and a
cover letter, too :)


Thanks!

Takashi
