This got backburnered again, while working on getting LRM into shape,
but I'll aim to push a (working) patch to Ben this weekend, putting this
at my highest priority.

LRM has now been modified to make ABI bumps a one-edit affair (just one
number in debian/rules needs to be changed, no more *_minor stuff, no
more sed across debian/control, etc), so handing off the "simple"
updates to Ben is a no-brainer at this point.  He should be able to keel
the kernel, LRM, and linux-meta lockstep with no more than an extra 2
minutes of effort.
