Never seen it before in my life. Can't find any references to it in any of
the mailing lists. I ended up googling the changelog text for a whopping
three hits and it appears that this change went into the powerpc patch
system (http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/linuxppc/patch?id=16712)

How it got from there into Linux is also a mystery. I see a batch of
powerpc updates just went into mainline but I don't know whose tree was
pulled - I wasn't copied on any pull request and I can't find one on the
kernel mailing list.

Perhaps Paul has just done a stealth merge, but the patch to which you
refer doesn't have his signoff. Very confused.

Guys, can we all play too?
