Patches that span subsystems are always painful and, even if
submitted to all subsystems simultaneously, are frequently
only partially applied.

Scripting is useful.  Coccinelle is a very good tool, but it
is not the only scripted patch generator.

A preferred mechanism to get scripted patches applied
tree-wide would be beneficial.
