If that is the case I would prefer to have the two individual patches taken for
the SRU for Karmic. This way it is much simpler to know where the patches came
from and in reverse to look for a certain patch contained in Karmic.

Could you post the two changes applied to Karmic individually (in case this
requires some tweaking)?
