Great patches, I hope the review helped. Other than my minor comments,
I think the patches look good, so it's a good time for other reviewers
to take a look. Would be good to get an ack from Ben, Anton, or Paul too
at some point.
These will clash spectacularly with my exception vector rework
unfortunately, but that's how it goes. I can help with rebasing if
mine ends up going in first.
