Thanks for looking into this!

Even for an RFC patch, it's better that you write a proper commit log,
and note that you can put all this background information right after
the "---" line, if you think that will help people review it.

Probably a Suggested-by will suffice, but I leave that to Paul ;-)

Please make you the last one in the "Signed-off-by" list, see
Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst:

"Notably, the last Signed-off-by: must always be that of the developer
submitting the patch."
