    I don't see any essential interaction between these patches. This appears
    to be 100% mergewerk. I don't think there's any essential conflict, just
    potential PITA rediffing for the (re)senders if/when they touch the same
    lines of code and things get accepted in a different order from what ppl
    merged their stuff against. As far as I'm concerned, business as usual.
