    It seems to me that most of the patch conflicts are mechanical
    and could be merged mechanically.

    However I believe that the documentation change to this comment is important:
    -----

    -----
    I scratched my head for a while to figure out that AT_NOTELF also was
    a subtraction as far as AT_VECTOR_SIZE_BASE was concerned.
