Thanks Andrew.

Last time I tried to send the module rename series we got confused some
how, patches not seen leading to conflicts in applying later patches
IIRC, which lead to the recommendation I send them to linux-next.

The series has grown a bit too now but I'm thinking I should send them
in smaller groups, such as coding style fixes and white space fixes,
change to use pr* logging, etc.

Hopefully that will make the process much more straight forward.

The thing is the patches are mostly not urgent which is why I keep
postponing sending them when higher priority things come up.

As for the patch from Stanislav, I'll put that at the top of my patch
queue, have a quick look at it and send it over so that, hopefully, it
can get merged.

I'll probably send a couple of others too to get things going on with
(what I'm calling) the module rename series.
