Ok, great !

Ok, just did.
I must admit I've been a bit lazy in this cycle, as I already have my tree split
into cleanup/fix/for-next/dt ...

For cleanup, I understand it all.
For the single fix, I wasn't aware I could make pull request before a merge
window for fixes, I though I could only issue them for post -rc1 series.

All right, understood, that translates into a separate pull request.

I know, I'm working on the ablation, it's just the patient is long to cure :)

Okay, understood.

Okay, thanks.
I'll try to split better next time. If I see I have another heavy pull-request
(at least heavy in a dying architecture context), I'll try to provide the pull
requests earlier, at -rc4, to let you time to correct me if I messed it up.
