And the rationale for the change from the original is what?  Changelogs are 
better with reasoning, than with just descriptions of change.

Just a style note - it's not great form to take someone else's large body of 
work, tweak it, then claim authorship (From:) and sign-off (Signed-off-by:).  
If it were me, I might be a little tweaked.  It's probably an oversight, and 
maybe Dave doesn't even care, but it's my pet peeve.

Since Dave has rebased & resent the original patchset he wrote, it might be 
better, going forward, for you guys to try to reach agreement on any necessary 
changes to his body of work, and get that committed.  Unless we want to carry 
on w/ dueling patchsets, which doesn't sound optimal to me.
