If you hadn't changed the patch at all, and it doesn't look like you
did, you could have (and likely should have) just carried over my ACK.
Regardless, I'll re-ACK it now (below). As far as the other two
patches are concerned, they look okay to me but I would defer my ACK
to maintainer of that code.
