I did a review and don't see the patch 8 is ready to go.

So, to move things forward I may suggest to reorder series that some
small preparation stuff can go first w/o dependency to the actual Logic

Hi Andy,

As mentioned in the reply to patch #8, as a practical exercise I don't see the reason to change it now. Let's conclude that issue first before deciding on patchset revising.

Thanks very much,
