For some reason, I wasn't CC'd in the cover letter, only on the patches
themselves.  Anyway, in order to get more/the right attention, I think
you should CC Ted and Eric Biggers on the entire thread.

Can you send a v3 with a proper CC list?

I haven't taken a second look at the patches yet, but it is no my to list.
