I commented on the pull request in November. Something like this:

  http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1311.2/02278.html

and then I have a follow-up in a reply to that that at least outlines
a few things that could be done to make it less barfy.

But judging from your email, you actually went through that
patch-series with a finer comb, I don't think there is anything in
that commentary of mine that adds anything to yours, apart on a
comment on the naming that I hated.
