I tried to say that I'm not holding this patch set up
because there are some basic questions. Paolo reviewed
it and gave an ack. If others want to re-start review 1 month
afterwards, that's fine, but I don't want to defer pull
request with this any longer. If someone can quickly spot
a serious non-cosmetic problem there, that's another
matter, and would make me defer the pull request.

I can tweak commit messages, sure, since that does not require
re-testing it all.

I have this patch in my tree and there's
no bisect issue, just test-built before and after this patch.
That's because I had the ifdefs in boards.h which you and
Peter objected to, but that is about cosmetics, I fixed that
with a patch on top to hopefully make you both happy.

Don't take my word for it, you can check out my tree and verify,
that would be very wellcome.
