Again the dispatch.c file is killed in the last patch, so I wasn't really
focusing on making nice code in dispatch.c Just functional enough for me
to verify it works after each patch in the series is applied, so I didn't
waste too much effort on code that is going away :-)

Yep, by deleting the entire file :-)
