I guess I am part of the recipient list because I did the original
suggestion of adding the single_bit_set()?

If this is the case - well, I do like this series. Overall it looks good
to me - but I for sure did not go through all the changes in detail ;)
If there is some other reason to loop me in (Eg, if someone expects me
to take a more specific look on something) - please give me a nudge.
