The patches look good to me.

I might apply [1-2/3] right away, but I'm a bit hesitant about the [3/3] (I'd
like it to spend some time in linux-next before it goes to Linus). Also, we've
lived without these changes for quite some time and I don't want to stretch the
process too much, so I'll queue them up for v4.5 if that's not a problem.
