Patches look fine to me. You are in fact several weeks late for 4.19, I
need to have anything that's going in to 4.19 by -rc6 or -rc7 time
(depending on whether we have an -rc8 or not). This is to ensure that it
gets plenty of time in linux-next as well. I've queued up patches this
time (since they were small), but please send them in in due time next
