Thanks a lot Roderick for the review.

In addition to those comments, please also try to follow the
submission guidelines (point 6 of
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst).
It's easier for us to share comments if your patch is inlined in the
email, so we can directly pinpoint which line is in trouble.

Also, keep point 9 in mind ("Don't get discouraged - or impatient").
For the first submissions, it's usual to have several revisions of the
same series.

Cheers,
Benjamin
