Right.  Another significant part of the series is, where two sets of
definitions exist for the same entity, consolidate on the one that looks
more Linux-style, usually the one in the (currently) uapi header.

Great!  Do you want me to rebase on some your public tree?  (Once I
split the patches as you requested, of course)?
