Thanks for the review.

As I explained in V1 of these patches, I am trying to merge the kernel and 
Realtek internal code repositories in the hope that Realtek will keep the two of 
them in sync. In addition, I am hoping that they will take over maintaining 
these codes in the future.

If I insist on an absolute minimum of change in the kernel code, then the churn 
of the Realtek repo is increased, and I run the risk of failing in the process 
of merging the two repos. In my estimation, that would be a bigger disaster than 
getting some code into the kernel that is not as pretty as could be. In 
addition, I am not sure how much longer I want to volunteer full time to support 
these codes.
