So I explicitly broke out these optimizations into separate patches so
that we can see them independently and agree they're idempotent wrt the
state machine.

The initial patches by Waiman were totally unreadable, partly because
the optimizations made the code terribly complex.

Luckily waiman then dropped the most horrible optimizations
(optimization for the very large nr_cpus case, were we cannot have a
pending byte), so the end result isn't quite as complex as it used to
