By the way, since you will propose a new version,
you have a long description of the cp_prefetch function in the code.
I think you should modify it according to the changes and describe how and
why the ch_len field of each chain is used and changed by this function.

Something like:

"
For each chain composing the channel program:
On entry ch_len hold the count of CCW to be translated.
On exit ch_len is adjusted to the count of successfully translated CCW.

This allows cp_free to find in ch_len the count of CCW to free in a chain.
"

Could also be inside the commit message.
