I have lots of mostly small tweaks, enabled by feature flags specific to my
firmware.  Adding my changes will increase the code size a bit, but I don't think
it will add much fundamental complexity.

If you will accept feature flags upstream for my firmware and will make an
effort to review patches in a timely manner, I will work on a patch series
and send it for review.
