As Thierry no longer has the hardware to test these patch series, I'll
take care of these and follow the upstreaming process. I think that
doesn't make sense send a v4 version of all 43 patches for this
change. Right now, only this patch received comments so I'll wait a
bit more for if we can get the other patches reviewed. If the others
are fine just and I don't need to send a new version just don't apply
this one and I will send a second version of that specific patch. Or
even better, is really trivial what needs to be changed, so maybe the
maintainer can do it? ;)
