Agreed, and this is exactly the plan.

As mentioned above, the treewide conversion is scripted with Coccinelle
(script below). The plan would be to regenerate this at an rc boundary,
once the preparatory patches (which cannot be scripted) have been
merged.

The ACCESS_ONCE() definitions and checkpatch bits would be removed in a
subsequent patch or series of patches.

Thanks,
Mark.
