As far as getting to the reserved bit I probably won't have the time in
the near future. If I were to resubmit the first 4 patches as a
standalone patch set would that be acceptable, or would they be held up
as well until the reserved bit issues is addressed?
Yes, I think that merging the first four will be OK. As long as they
don't add some bug which [5/5] corrects, which happens sometimes!
Please redo, retest and resend sometime?
