I'm not applying this, sorry.

Just for the record, I consider these kinds of ancient driver cleanups
painful to review, and unless they allow some ugly global kernel API
to be improved or removed such changes have very little gain.

In fact, most of them have a good chance to break things.

It is especially a dubious sequence when you cluster so many of these
things together into a large patch series.

If you are really serious about fixing real bugs, post these one at a
