Please do one patch per function. If the change follows the same logic,
it's not a problem to use the same changelog, but the patch should be
revieweable and not doing unrelated things.

If the function prototype or return values is changed it's easier from
the reviewer's perspective to focus on just one function and the
surrounding code. Even if it looks straightforward to you to merge them

When the return value changes from int -> void, it's necessary to check
wheter any of the callees is not hiding a BUG_ON that should be really
turned into proper error handling in the caller. In that case the return
type should stay and error handling added.

After a brief look I think all functions are safe here, but that's
something that should be mentioned in the changelog. Please update the
patches and resend. Thanks.
