Laszlo,

Thanks for all the work on this series and the very
detailed commit messages.

Liming's email on removing the .S and .asm files is an
RFC.  We need to see this RFC approved before we can
commit changes to remove .S and .asm files.  This should
be a separate activity.

One odd thing I see in this series is that the instruction
patch label in the .nasm file is just a label and does not
have any storage associated with it.  But in the C code
the type UINT8 is used with the label which implies some
storage.  Can we make the globals in C code be a pointer
(maybe VOID *) instead of UINT8?

Thanks,

Mike
