Thanks, Paul!

Based on this feedback, as well as the feedback from others on prior
versions that has since been addressed, once there's a v4 with the
changes suggested by Paul (and the signoff and acks/reviews added), I'm
going to let this patch start cooking in linux-next (after the currently
active merge window closes, of course). That'll help shake out any
other potential missing dependencies or merge issues, and leave plenty
of time for people to discuss it further before the subsequent merge
window.

Consolidating from two ifdef blocks to one, based on feedback on the
initial version suggesting simplification of the ifdeffery.
