I was just looking at this patch. Yes it is incomplete but I think that was the point. Give upstream taste what the patch looks like before diving in and changing all those 108 occurrences (I did change them locally). The patch looks good to me, but as Jan suggests, you can break this big change into smaller (=easier to review) patches. In the first you can just introduce the function. And then have patch per each folder. Alternatively, you can write a small semantic patch  and use that to generate the diff. But this is rather advanced stuff.
