Yep, that diff looks fine compared to the git diff of those four patches.
How do you want to handle this? The above four patches should go into
3.8 and stable, but they're not currently in Linus' tree and it's
probably too late in the cycle to merge them this week. Should we just
wait until 3.9 is out and put the patches into the stable trees then?
My email shows that the bad commit
f7965c0846d74b270e246c1470ca955d5078eb07 has been added to the 3.2, 3.4,
and 3.7 stable trees, as well as Canonical's 3.7 stable tree. I'm also
fine with just reverting that commit from 3.8 and stable.
