Agreed, but the patch still touches machine-specific headers.

In this case I think it is perfectly acceptable to track down reviews from
other developers, enough to get consensus that the generic change is OK.
For example if a couple of non-machine maintainers reviewed this an thought
it sensible, then you'd be OK to commit. With machine maintainers perhaps
tweaking this later.
