I'm happy to go along with that. 1/2 of this series was the "fix". 2/2
just kind of came up as part of the discussion that followed. Tom, can
you handle that or do you want me to send a v4 of the series with just
the first patch?

Just for my own understanding is the "reproducible team" a u-boot
thing or a debian thing? I'm not really active in any of the debian
projects so maybe someone there should pick this up if it's a debian
thing.
