Two small things:
1. You're right, you don't need to include changes to the ChangeLog,
they're generated from git commits anyway.
2. Please include your name in your emails.  This one does (thanks)
but the patch email should as well.

Aside from that, I'm guessing the hal patch just looks ugly due to the
wacky calling convention and assembly, so you might wait for feedback
from Alexandre on that.  If you don't hear anything, ask again in a
couple days ;)

Thanks for contributing,
