I was assuming my patches were for 3.4 rather than 3.3, since it's pretty
late for new features in 3.3. In that case, there wouldn't be an issue,

If you do want to go ahead and push my patches into 3.3, your proposal
looks fine to me. Mark, do you want me to push the patch to Linus, or
do you want to pick it up?
