That's a lot of rewriting :(

How about at least keeping the file names the same to make it easier to
see what happened here?

Then send a follow-on patch that just does the rename?

And by taking something like this, are you agreeing that Samsung will
help out with the development of this code to clean it up and get it
into "real" mergable shape?

Also, I can't take this patch for this simple reason alone:

Don't delete SPDX lines :)
