Hi Antonio,

Some general comments on this patchset:
- patches 1 and 3 of the series should be squashed into one.
- patches 3-6 are purely cosmetic, and do not contribute to fixing the mempool reconfiguration mechanism;
  as such, they should be part of a separate patchset.
- initial testing has been successful; I'll send on final results as soon as they are available.
