The kernel doc patch should go before this patch.

Sorry, did I miss your answer about these castings all over the patch?

What so special about these magic 17, 18, 19? Can you provide definitions?

Please avoid ping-pong type of changes in the same series (similar way
as for kernel doc), which means don't introduce something you are
going to change later on. Patch to move to do {} while () should go
before this one.
