    Independend of all the concerns and useful comments regarding LWP ...
    it seems to me that patches 1-7 are still of use (cleaning up the
    save/restore code making it more maintainable).

    Wouldn't it make sense to add patches 1-7 to a branch that is tested
    with linux-next to find potential regressions?
