 Thank you for coming back to me and for your promise.  I'll strive to 
address your concerns next weekend.

 Unfortunately a PDU in my remote lab has botched up and I've lost control
over it (thankfully not one for the RISC-V machine affected by the patch 
series, so I can still manage it for reboots, etc., but the botched PDU is 
actually upstream), so depending on how situation develops I may have to 
book air travel instead and spend the whole weekend getting things back to 
normal operation at my lab.  That unit was not supposed to fail, not in 
such a silly way anyway, sigh...
