OK, assuming this is acceptable (no obvious problems jump out at me,
and we can also test it with HMM), then how would you like to proceed, as
far as patches go: add such a patch as part of this series here, or as a
stand-alone patch either before or after this series? Or something else?
And did you plan on sending it out as such?

Also, the diffs didn't quite make it through intact to my "git apply", so
I'm re-posting the diff in hopes that this time it survives:
