Thanks! I've made a few comments on PATCH 3/6, mainly around
bisectability and other questions.

However, I wanted to test this patch set, especially to understand
better the impact on the System configuration, but the patches no
longer apply. Would you mind fixing the few comments, and resending an
updated series on top of the latest master?

Thanks a lot!
