Ok, I have applied this patch - but this patch only - as a
well-researched preparatory patch.

The actual conversion patch looks fine to me too, and I see a few
acks, but I think I'd like to see it during a merge window just
because it's large and does significant changes, while this one is
purely preparatory.

Al, comments?

One small note: please don't use lkml.org references since they tend
to be slow and flaky - use lore.kernel.org instead. Also, fix your git
config to use 12-character git hashes (best done by just removing the
explicit hash size entirely, and letting modern git shorten hashes
appropriately automatically).
