My last mail on this series. To make sure the tree stays buildable that
second patch to drop support for 'boolean' should only be applied a
release or two after the cleanup patch has been applied. Otherwise we're
bound to run into fun build errors in linux-next, and even mainline, for
quite a few commits, aren't we? One tree still using boolean is all it
