The Intel copyright was applied as it is standard operating procedure.
After some internal discussions, we basically agree.  The changes
created here are trivial from the original and the result nearly 100%
your work.  The next RFC and any subsequent submissions will not have
the Intel copyright for trivial changes rotely applied.

Regarding the constify plugin breakage, as we don't presently have a
constify plugin, I removed it.
