Thanks, this is way cleaner.  Patchwork is still broken but IIRC we reached
consensus on these.  I'm not going to include these in my first 5.9 PR, as I
want to get that out tomorrow to avoid more merge conflicts, but assuming
there's reviews from the other maintainers I'd like to take this for my second
5.9 merge window PR.

Assuming you've been collecting reviews and acks, do you mind posting another
version with them?  If not I have some scripts to dig them out, so it's not a
big deal.
