*bites lip* it's fairly low impact *duck*.
Given the wins seem to be fairly impressive across the board, spending
a few days on getting this right isn't going to push 2.6 back any
noticable amount of time.

This stuff is mostly of the case "it either works, or it doesn't".
And right now, corner cases like apm aside, it seems to be holding up
so far. This isn't as far reaching as it sounds. There are still
drivers being turned upside down which are changing things in a
lot bigger ways than this[1]
