I discussed this with Phillip a bit, and it looks like we'll go for a
2.6.21 merge. This gives a couple of months for testing and review in
linux-next.

Of course, this assumes that someone will actually perform that testing
and review. Chances are that it'll just sit there, getting nothing more
than compilation testing.

Apparently I reviewed the code a while back - that grey cell must have
died. Does anyone else intend to review the code in that timeframe?
If not, we might as well merge it now, if ever..
