Most (I agree not all) of them are build fixes. Some (the h8300 symbol prefix
commit and the input one) are fixes for regressions introduced in
early v3.10-rc.

I'd like to have as many green builds as possible on,
to make it easier to catch regressions.

Because I promised to do so when I announced the creation of this branch,
around v3.10-rc2, cfr.

Usually I just send patches like these to Andrew, who forwards them to you near
the last rc of a cycle. But this time I had accumulated so many of them I wanted
to offload him by creating my own branch and pull request.

Thanks for considering pulling anyway!
