The previous fixes does not work on new platforms (eg. lynx poing lp).
That's why this bug is 'fix released' previously. Those fixes did work then.

Dunno whether reusing this bug or creating a new one is better for
this situation.
I'd like to keep all these patchram related info together, so I'm reusing it.
If using a new bug is preferred, please let me know, I'll create one.

No, it's not a backport. Just as what the only SOB line implies, it is
mine alone. :-)
