I'm not applying patches like this with not even a minor
explanation of what kind of cleanups are happening.

And I think this comment, and the others you are removing are
absolutely appropriate and should not be removed.

Also, what value is there in renaming the function argument
'write_ptr' to 'start_ptr'?  I think both names are equally
clear.

You have to provide explanations and justifications in the commit log
message of your changes.

I'm not applying this series, sorry.
