Hi,

This came up when trying to move ARC over to generic word-at-a-time
interface.

 - 1/4 is a trivial fix (and needed for ARC switch)
 - 2/4 is mucking with internals hence the RFC. I could very likely be
   overlooking some possible DoS / exploit issues and apologies in advance
   if thats the case but I felt like sharing it anyways to see what
   others think.
 - 3/4, 4/4 are ARC changes to remove the existing ARC version and
   switch to generic (needs 1/4).

Thx,
-Vineet
