And just to clarify - after having gone through the first several
patches of the most recent posting, the amount of changes I
asked for was large enough to make me stop spending significant
amounts of time on the rest of the series the 6th time.

And just to clarify for the future - now that I complained the 6th
time about simple coding style things, I'm going to not repeat
this exercise on this series again, but silently refrain from
considering it ready for getting applied until I can see that some
meaningful cleanup was really done (i.e. this doesn't mean I'm
not willing to take care of the occasional violation while
committing, but I'm tired of pointing out things that are obvious
looking at the raw patches).

The same, to a lesser degree, goes about other comments - I'm
simply not having the time to reiterate the same (or similar
recurring) problems on every submission again. After this long
a time, and several iterations, some common sense must be
possible to get applied to how such a patch series ought to be
structured and implemented.
