Hi Kamal,

This one (and the accompanying revert) are still not present in more
recent stable kernels, so I find it surprizing that you're proposing
to integrate them now. If someone upgrades from 3.13.11.9 to 3.14.21
or 3.16.5, they'd expect to keep all fixes but will lose this one, so
this is a bit confusing. Is there any reason you're not tracking fixes
from more recent versions like Jiri, Li, Ben and I are doing ?

Thanks,
Willy
