    Ok, Eirik, if you want this stuff to go in I can fast see it becoming
    a lot more complex... try to split the patch into less significant pieces
    that can be committed incrementally to 'get them out of the way'.  If
    you can submit smaller self contained incremental patch sets (e.g. small
    enough that I can review each one in ~10 minutes), then I will review them
    and you or I can commit them in pieces.  But this is just a bit too
    complex to just commit as is and cross our fingers :-)
