Looks good to me. Are you planning to submit the RISC-V port upstream
any time soon? If so, just keep the patch in your tree and add my

However, I did see a lot of similar bugs now that you point me to it:

These all have the same problem, and we should fix them, as well as
(probably) adding an automated check to scripts/
