So I just went through and addressed these formatting issues in my tree.

I just noticed this train-wreck: cycles_t and cycle_t are obnoxiously
different types. (One is an int on some arches and the other is a

You very much want to use cycle_t here. And I think that goes for the
introduced cycle_between() function.

So I'm fixing that up as well in this patch, but there's a few other
