Pretty nice and well organized patch series. This is excellent work !
Although I didn't reply to all the patches, I've read them all and you
can add "Acked-by: Nicolas Pitre <nicolas.pitre at linaro.org>" to all of
them after the already posted comments are addressed.
I know that you also developed a comprehensive test suite in parallel to
validate all this code. I'm therefore pretty confident it'll work as
well if not better than the existing code we had in the tree for quite a
while before you started working on it.
I think this is ready to be merged with Russell whenever you are done
with those small fixes.
