    well... I'll volunteer to keep a 2.6.X-postY series.. this fix could be
    part of that.

    For me the -post series should be
    * Only patches that are in later head kernels (maybe lightly touched to
    resolve patch conflicts)
    * Only patches that fix something critical/important
    (where critical is of course a gray area but I'm sure a decent balance
    will be found)
