I looked at all the patches in the series and they all looked
sensible.

I have a few comments (sent as individual review) but all of the
suggestions in them are "by the way I noticed this issue that is not
new to this series while I was reading the code, and we may want to
fix it elsewhere", not "this is broken in the patch, we need to fix
it before queuing".

Thanks for a pleasant read.
