Hello David,

I see that this series is now marked "Not Applicable" in patchwork. But
the reason is not obvious to me.  May I ask why?

AFAICS, the series technically still applies to net-next, so I assume
the reason is that it is somehow inappropriate.  That's OK, but I do
assume some of it can be applied if split out from the rest?  It would
be good to have some hints about which parts I need to change or remove
for a possible resubmission.
