Awesome.  How is the automatic device detection done, though?  I'd like

Right, that's fine.  But if they're posted in fine-grained patch form
for review, this is much easier than two or three individual patches.

Right, it could probably be optimised by making git-format-patch dump
into a directory and using --compose with the directory for
