I pointed quite a lot of simple cleanups that could be done, but got
no feedback...

You should really post new version for review to people that commented
on the old one.

Plus "I set a rule that code must be cleaned in staging, and this is
not happening here, so it has to be moved to mainline, ignoring all
the usual rules" is quite interesting justification.

You ignored even NAKs from people that maintain stuff this interfaces with.

Late NAK here, too, FWIW. Because it is going to be used as an
argument "it is in mainline, so it must be ok". You are willing to
ignore mainline rules for this; it should be way easier to ignore
single staging rule for this one.
