I'll have a second look. It might be doable if it's only those 3

In any case, I'm happy to delay that, wait for ARM to go in, then sent a
new batch that also fixes ARM up.

Once those patches are in, we get some saner APIs to memblocks which
make it a lot easier to rewrite the core, which I think Peter want to do
(and I like his ideas of using a single list very much too).
