Nice cleanup. I'll just be a bit picky here, so you may not consider my
comment for this patchset, but maybe for the future ones. Unless I'm
mistaken, there is no reason to group all these patches together.

The first 4 patches are independent fixes, and thus could have been sent
separately to netdev -net.

Then the last 2 ones could have been squashed together, because I don't
see a real value to seperate them since you duplicate some defines, e.g.
REG_PORT. And this patch would be a candidate for netdev -net-next.
