Yes, it's an intermediate state of the code to not break bisecting.
The code changed by this patch is then completely replaced later by the
patch 11 of this patchset.

Will add a note about this to the commit message.

Normally, copy-assignment of a struct is a safe operation (this is purely
an internal kernel struct, so there are no worries about padding leakage
to the userspace), but can replace this with a memcpy().

Will do.

Will drop them.
