If the existing HW is only following the 'Extended' model, then I'd
suggest you only support this for now. It has two effects:

- it simplifies the current code, making it more maintainable and
easier to reason about

- it sends the message to integrators that 'Extended' is the correct
model, and that it is what they should support

Now, we don't have much time left to get this series into -next (I
will be closing the tree to new features this week, and only queue

So whatever you need to do, please do it quickly so that we can have
at least some of this in 5.20.



Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.
