Excellent, thanks to both Kamil and yourself for collecting the data.
It's helpful to have independent verification.

Great.

Agreed.

My own testing completed and the results are within expectations and I
saw no red flags. Unfortunately, I consider it unlikely they'll be merged
for 4.18. Srikar Dronamraju's series is likely to need another update
and I would need to rebase my patches on top of that. Given the scope
and complexity, I find it unlikely they would be accepted for an -rc,
particularly this late of an rc. Whether we hit the 4.19 merge window or
not will depend on when Srikar's series gets updated.

My pleasure.
