Hello Andrew,

I might not have searched all the relevant trees or might have just searched
earlier than required. But I dont see these patches (or your proposed fixes)
either in mmotm (2020-04-29-23-04) or in next-20200504. Wondering if you are
waiting on a V2 for this series accommodating the changes you had proposed.
