What I meant is that the 2 proposals were very close already, with
only minimal differences. As David had posted his set first and you
didn't add a RFC tag nor stated that you were just sharing the
patches, I understood it was an alternative approach to David's, which
is not optimal here. This topic is far from being that polemic, that
could benefit from having 2 competing approaches. So first I wanted a
joint approach, and then build on it.

For now lets see how David's new patchset will look like. It was
almost there already.
