This series has a number of problems:

- It seems to introduce bugs rather than fixing anything
- It doesn't do a complete job of cleaning up the drivers
- Patch 4 does more than it is advertises doing
- You haven't cc'd the authors of these drivers, which would be common
courtesy

For a series that is a "minor change", that's a bit much. Please do not
send such blanket changes without understanding what you are doing.

Thanks,

	M.
