Patch LGTM; please keep an eye on the series:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20210707224310.1403944-2-ndesaulniers@google.com/

If that lands in kbuild before this, this patch will need to be
rebased to avoid a conflict in linux-next.

So (tentatively :-P):
Reviewed-by: Nick Desaulniers <ndesaulniers@google.com>

If the patch needs to be rebased on the series linked above, please
drop my reviewed by tag and I will re-review. Perhaps putting me
explicitly on Cc: in the commit message will help notify me if there
are successive versions?
