Wouldn't the "flash-kernel" maintainer want to issue an update for
people who are still using Precise on OMAP4?  The reason I proposed
the patch was to help people who might have the same problem I have
with Precise on OMAP4.

Or are you saying that I should submit two patches:  one for Precise
and one for Quauntal?

Will do.
