It's been about a week and a half since I posted the set and haven't
really gotten much feedback other than a suggestion of a slight tweak to
the titles for patches 7 & 8 to mention page_reporting. I'm mainly looking
for input on patches 3, 4, 7 and 8 since those are the ones that contain
most of the changes based on recent feedback.

I'm wondering if there is any remaining concerns or if these patches are
in a state where they are ready to be pulled into the MM tree?
