Thanks for posting the patches early Michael, it's definitely useful,
but I'd advise to post as RFC before the dependency is in the tree.
CI bots won't understand English well enough to take care of this
dependency, so we're loosing whatever test coverage they provide..

Please repost once Andrew's patches get merged, I'm marking these as
RFC in patchwork for now.
