OK.  Tentatively I replaced your old series with these 8 patches
including the last one, as I tend to agree with the value the
earlier clean-up in the series gives us in the longer term.  As you
and Felipe discussed, we may want to replace the last one with a
simpler "don't bother asking" patch, but I think that is more or
less an orthogonal issue.
