Hi Jerome,

Although Ralph has been testing and looking at this patchset, I just now
noticed that there hasn't been much public review of it, so I'm doing
a bit of that now. I don't think it's *quite* too late, because we're
still not at the 5.1 merge window...sorry for taking so long to get to

Ralph, you might want to add ACKs or Tested-by's to some of these
patches (or even Reviewed-by, if you went that deep, which I suspect you
did in some cases), according to what you feel comfortable with?
