Hi Kishon,

I am about to apply this series but I could not help notice that
some of these patches are fixes rather than improvements, it would
be good to propagate the changes to older kernels too provided
we explain the bugs in the respective logs, in particular for (3)
above it should not be complicated to reproduce a failure.

Thanks,
Lorenzo
