Getting this series in actually means more work for me as I have to 
rewrite my unfinfshed patch to not use send_recv so just leaving it as it 
is would be less work. I mean this patch:

https://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/qemu-ppc/2020-06/msg00682.html

Where having send_recv is actually nice as I can write it without too much 
if-else clauses but having send_recv and start_transfer with opposite 
sense recv argument is confusing. This is where the orignal patch comes 
from and the point was to just correct this inconsistency between 
start_transfer and send_recv because I got it wrong first but it went 
overboard now removing the whole function instead of just correcting it so 
I'll have to rewrite this patch and make it longer and also have to 
rethink what can fail and how. I also have to review and test all other 
places I've used send_recv before so at this point I would not mind if it 
was left as it is now, then I could just drop my original patch and 
reverse the last argument of send_recv in the above WIP patch and be done 
with it. Much less work than going through this series so I almost regret 
bringing this up again. But if it makes you happy so be it.

Unfortunately it's not only firmware but there's also AmigaOS which is not 
freely available so that would be hard to automate. Other than that 
testing sam460ex and pegasos2 with Linux and MorphOS could be done but I'm 
more comfortable with running a few commands that I already have than 
setting up and learning a testing framework for this so it won't be me who 
makes these test cases. It's not that many boards and OSes that I care 
about to need it automated but I've shared the commands before, they are 
on my web pages about these boards.
