The series was intended as a code cleanup and in the process tried to
introduce a false concept that I objected to. Since the cleanup was not
predicated upon that idea, the patches would have been much tidier
without it.

The fundamental issue at stake here is execlists behaves badly and we
have to futz around in higher level code to undo that mistake.
