So the subject is slightly misleading, because it is not a rename. I
would say "replace x with y" instead.

[Arguably I can change that when applying the patch, but since we are
going to wait for the dependencies to go in, it should not be a big
deal to send an update of this patch alone?]

And while at it, can you please try to make the comments shorter so
they each take one line?
