It has never been said that it was a "cleanup" (whatever the double
quotes mean) but a rework. And it's not a feature either.

You actually never asked for a fix, and went head first calling this
patch "bad" and asking for nothing but reverting it.
It's not really a very good way to move forward and start a productive
I'm sorry if this cause you any issues, but reverting this patch will
break users (and this time at the kernel level only, the DT has

That reduces the max size of the screens, but I don't really expect the screen
