Correct. I looked at the result and the merge looks correct. I'll turn
my objections into fixup patches to apply on top, where still worth it.
In particular I'll start with the ".x" revert, as it will make
backporting the bug fix easier.

I can't see them at

To clarify: I do not claim that they can't be applied, I'm only saying
they're not there yet (which is OK as they were still pending my
review.) They do apply just fine, no problem with this.

I have no formal tree yet, but my current patch set can be seen at:

First 2 patches from you are already upstream. You should rebase your
updated patch series on top of upstream + patches 03 and 04, as they
will go in first.
