This patch is required ontop of all the rest :) The top patches won't
compile without this one. Every patch in the patchset should be able to
compile successfully without the aid of the patches that come after it.

I think here is a conflict. If we do so, then we should make effort to
prevent the independent patch to take effect before the whole patchset
