Thanks for working on this! Can you describe the process for the
replacement? For example, was it a 1:1 replacement from one set of
functions to another, or something more nuanced? Did you do this by hand,
or with the help of something like Coccinelle?

Including these details will help maintainers with review, and will help
others do other conversions in the future.
