Thanks! Just to note, first patch (accept "-0") is independent and
can be sent at any time.

Yes, kstrto*(), scanf() didn't change since when this was sent.

It should say to switch from simple_strto*() to one of the 4 officially
sanctioned integer conversion routines: parse_integer(), kstrto*(),
kstrto*_from_user(), sscanf(). I'll send a patch.

Well, yes, but the only interesting thing there are test tables.
