I'd still prefer waiting for direction from Markus. We've been tied up
by other things (KVM Forum, 4.2 release), but now that we are in freeze,
this is actually a GOOD time for Markus to finally get back to this
series, and there is going to be less rebasing needed if we can apply
the entire cleanup right as 5.0 development opens in a couple of weeks.
