The patch is not in Linus's tree yet, right? That is a requirement to
go into the -stable releases.

Also, it is not exactly obvious why a change for idr is needed. The
"new" drm code in Fedora releases is understandable, but that is not
code that is in the main 2.6.27-stable tree, right?

Also, please cc: the stable developers if you want them to pay attention
to messages like this.
