I took the "trivially obvious" parts of this patch series - the ones that
were basically trivial one-liner cleanups (in addition to the first patch
that was needed for them, of course).

Anything that renamed files and did other infrastructure things (x86) or
that had vmlinux.lds.S files that didn't match the nice pattern I'd much
rather take as series of patches that first clean up the infrastructure
and then do the replacement.
