As I stated on the patch in v2, can we at least make a best effort as to
not write code that breaks on a BE platform? Thanks.

Nit: In the future you may want to consider including actual git URLs in
your cover-letters, especially because the arm cgit thingy requires me
to click back, copy-paste twice etc., to construct the git url.
