I'd prefer to wait until this has gone upstream because I don't think 
its gonna make it in its current form. It appears that this single patch 
is composed of at least 2 logic steps. Given that it fixes current 
functionality there is no reason that it cannot get included in 2.6.39, 
but it needs to go through the regular upstream review process.
