    Greg, can we hold off on applying this patch to the stable tree?

    It turns out that this change causes a WARN_ON to trigger in some
    circumstances, and the proposed patch to fix _that_ hasn't yet been
    submitted to the mainline because a few people have reported that it
    leaks DMA pool memory. So far there hasn't been much progress in
    tracking this down.
