Oh boy, that's a lot. Too many to fix quickly IMO.

Sorry, I'm late to this thread. What is it reverting; who authored
the original patch? Was it mka@chromium.org?

Is this patch in -next, or has it already hit mainline? I think it's
better to revert, then start upstreaming fixes, then re-land it once
we're warning free.
