The bug fixes depend on the cleanups.
* 1/7 has the new functions.
* 2/7 has bug fixes that require the new functions.
* 3/7 fixes (and optimizes) the incoming code path, so that
* 4/7 can fix the bugs.
* 5/7 is needed to test the code from part 1.
* 6/7 is the cleanup of parsing (also fixes some bugs introduced by
davem's patch in December), so that
* 7/7 can fix the bugs.

I originally tried submitting these as separate individual pairs of
patches (in November, December, January), but nobody paid any attention.
