Thanks a lot for picking up this work where I dropped the ball.

Patches 1-5 look good to me, and I replied on one remaining issue I see
with patch 6. I think you did more work on these that I did, by doing
a nice write-up and splitting them into separate patches with useful
changelogs, you should keep authorship, and just change my
S-o-b to Suggested-by.

If you prefer to keep me as the author, then the correct way would
be to commit them with --author= to ensure that the author and
first s-o-b match.
