Thanks for the review! I've fixed it in my tree. I'll not re-post the
set unless I have to make another significant change or someone requests
it.

I did make one other change, and that was to drop the "const" qualifiers
on the integer arguments in the new API. David Howells pointed out that
they don't really help anything, and the prototypes look cleaner without
them.

This set is now in linux-next as well, so I'm going to try to get this
merged into v4.16, assuming no problems between now and the merge
window.
