First comment, you send a bunch of patches, yet you didn't sign off on
some of them, why?  If you are forwarding on patches, please sign off
showing you have reviewed them (so you can be on the path-of-blame if
there is a problem...)

There has been some discussion on some of these patches, so I'm guessing
we need a v8 set of this series at the least?
