Seems better indeed. Looks like you've cleaned up multiple cases.

Now if you could only tell me what is wrong with my series... "Your
series does not work correctly. I will comment why later." I've been
at the edge of my seat, Fermat's last theorem style. :)

By the way, it looks like 5.7 will be raising the minimum binutils to
2.23: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200316160259.GN26126@zn.tnic/ In
light of this, I'll place another patch on top of my branch handling
that transition.
