Done, I'll be sure to keep that prefix in mind for future flag-based 
changes.

Sure thing, kind of hard to do that on the initial submission but I will 
do it for the v2 shortly :)

Thank you for the ack. The conflicting changes that I mentioned in the 
cover letter have been merged in 5.15-rc1 so if you guys want to take 
these changes via -tip, just holler for an ack from Masahiro on the 
second patch on v2 (but I am going with the assumption this will be 
merged via the kbuild tree).

Cheers,
Nathan
