I agree that these are clearly net-next material.

It says "Come in we're open" for me. Maybe that changed over night and I
was just a day early? I'll check this for future submissions.

I'm all for writing good commit messages and if you look into the few
commits I've authored thus far, you see that I usually do explain them
in detail. In these cases however, I'm left wondering what value any
further explanation would add. Repeating the subject does not make sense
to me.

I feel that we're overdoing it here and that there are more important
aspects to be improved about the driver. I'll be focusing on those.

Helmut
