In the previous review, I made two requests about this patch.

* Please improve description.

* Please lose Change-Id.

None of which seems to have happened and my Acked-by isn't added
either. Come on. Give me some reason to keep reviewing this stuff.
A couple more suggestions.

* If this goes in, it will go through Jens' block tree. Better keep
him cc'd.

* It's generally a good idea to have Cc: tags in the description
footer for the maintainers of the affected subsystems.
