SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 3/7] drivers/acpi: convert seqno to use seqnum_ops
Hi Shuah,

First off, please indicate the component in the subject, for example:

"ACPI: extlog: convert seqno to use seqnum_ops"

Apart from the above, it would be good to say why the change is an improvement.

It looks like the rationale is that using struct seqnum32 would allow
tools to easily detect the usage of sequence numbers, but is there
anything else in this particular case?
