    Just to clarify my words if someones waiting for a patch: That was meant
    in a longer term. I'm beginning a new device after I finish Kone[+]
    userland tools. That would be at the earliest in january. What I wanted
    to say was to please apply these patches in this state, the code
    duplication gets handled with the next device.
