I'd like to avoid extra delays to getting the current (with necesary
fixes) series accepted because the series is rather intrusive and
could have conflicts with other patches.

I'm also worried that I don't have access to any of the systems that
use the dynamic overlay code, and I don't have any way to test the
changes.

Can we encourage the users of this code to convert the open coded
dlpar code?

I could write a simplistic test case, but I'm concerned that
simplistic is not anywhere near sufficient. And my test case
would reflect the same assumptions I already have when I
wrote this patch.
