typo: completely. Please proofread your comments closely. I saw at
least one typo in the commit messages too.

More in general comments that say what the code does can generally be eschewed.

This calls the same function. I did not see code that changes behavior
based on sw_backup. Will this not give the same result?

Also, this lacks the role test (add or del). Is that because if
falling back onto SW mode during add, this code does not get called at
all on delete?

This is the same ternary test as above. It recurs a few times. Perhaps
it can use a helper.
