Ok, I've queued patches 1, 2, and 15 on a stable branch here:


which should find its way into -next shortly via our for-next/core branch.
If you want to make changes, please send additional patches on top.

This is targetting 5.4, but I will drop it before the merge window if
we don't have both of the following in place:

  * Updated ABI documentation with Acks from Catalin and Kevin
  * The other patches in the series either Acked (so I can pick them up)
    or queued via some other tree(s) for 5.4.

Make sense?
