My plan was to remove the BKL in the obvious cases in the followup patches
that are also included in the series. So should I just merge the obvious stuff
into one patch? Christian Borntraeger was actually requesting the opposite. He
wants to be able to bisect it to the patch that is removing the BKL. That
would be much simple with many small patches I think.
