There seems to be some new features/cleanups (or improvements as
you say) here. Could you explain the negative impact not applying
these changes will have? Patches 1 and 3 in particular.

net-next is now closed [1], and will reopen some time after the merge
window is over. For now we are only expecting fixes for the net tree.

Could you (a) provide stronger motivation these changes are fixes; or
(b) separate the fixes from improvements?

Thank you!
