What is the origin of the hadran? I'm referring to the whole extended multi-paragraphed "prayer", not to the words "Hadran alach."

The ספר האשכול in Hilchos Sefer Torah 14 brings down the Hadran Alach, Yehi Ratzon, and sons of Rav Pappa parts. I think that is the earliest source, and he does not have the Haarev, Modim, or second Yehi Ratzon.
