So I think up to here the series could go in afaic. Question is - does
this make sense without the ARM parts?

Thanks, Jan

Without the ARM parts there is no technical need for it. On the other hand, there are many other series pending in the same general area so having this part merged would put everyone on the same footing to resolve conflicts and to move forward from.
