Right, it got put in with the delta.

However, we do need to address this for gutsy release. Not so much
getting this into mainline, but how we'll get rid of this local delta to
our tree. Right now, our gutsy main tree is pristine. I'd like to
continue this trend :)

Speakup is one of the most invasive non-upstream patches we have in our
tree. Can we discuss how to address this? (better now than later)
