patches that I consider to be ready for master (just to simplify
Pierre's job and hopefully speed things up a bit).

Check my original mail to Pierre for details:

I just created such a branch that contains all patches from
arch-projects [1]. I had to rebase almost all of them to apply (due to
my "Support non-standard install locations" patch changing the naming
