Would it be possible to rearrange your patches so that you don't break
anything in the middle? I think merging all the trivial 'change signature'
patches into one would also make reviewing easier. Nobody in their
right mind is looking through a full series of 43 patches, especially
if they do not make sense on their own, but one patch that changes a
function signature tree-wide would be looked at by many people and can
be applied standalone.

It does make sense to keep the 'foo: clean up arch_ptrace' patches
separate though, since they are also useful on their own and need
real review by the arch maintainers.
