I understand that this is a tedious task; the code should have been
propagating errors from the beginning.

The most natural way of splitting things would be to go function by
function, top level ones first, and leaf ones last, one function per
patch (maybe pairs of functions, as in the map/unmap case). Such
model would be problematic (almost) only when there's recursion at
some point, which I don't think would be the case anywhere here.
As mentioned before, the __must_check annotation is a great help
to not miss any callers - both to you as you put things together and
to the reviewers to be ascertained that nothing was missed.

Jan
