Ok, I sent off the pull request for the driver core tree now. I had all
of my other trees merged "first" so that all of the conflicts would
happen just once here. Hopefully I've pointed out all of the potential
and real problems with this merge.

Ugh, this was a messy one, sorry about all of this, full-tree api
changes and cleanups are a pain at times.
