Thanks a lot, Herbert.

Applied those now, I'll send a pull request to Dave with them. Once that
trickles back into net-next I'll apply the third patch (it doesn't apply
without the others), and then Dave you can take the rhashtable one.

Let me know if you'd prefer I take the rhashtable one through my tree,
which really would be only so you don't have to track the dependency.

NB: it'd be easier in patchwork if you tagged all the patches with v3 in
their own PATCH tag, or put the "v3" tag into the actual subject (not
the "[PATCH 0/4]" tag because evidently patchwork drops the tags and
doesn't track them for the *series* just each *patch* ... so with what
you did nothing is visible in patchwork, even just appending "(v3)" to
the subject of the cover letter would've fixed that...
