Hm, sorry, I only looked for the patch title in your series. It seems
to be this entry:

commit 8410565f540db87ca938f56f92780d251e4f157d
Author: Bob Moore <robert.moore@intel.com>
Date: Tue Jun 10 14:29:26 2008 +0800

ACPICA: Fix for access to deleted object <regression>

Fixes problem introduced in 20080123, with fix for Unload operator.
Parse tree object can be already deleted; must use the opcode
within the WalkState.

ACPI: kmemcheck: Caught 16-bit read from freed memory
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10669

Signed-off-by: Lin Ming <ming.m.lin@intel.com>
Signed-off-by: Bob Moore <robert.moore@intel.com>
Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>

but now it has a completely new title and a new author? This looks
like just the fix, I couldn't find the original patch (which had a
nice title and description on its own). Hm.

Thanks, and sorry for the noise.
