What's up is this: I'd submitted them a few times to the mailing list and
maintainers in the distant past. Andrew ended up picking them up when
maintainers didn't. Through him they made it into the linux-next tree and
have been living in Andrews queue and -next ever since.

I simply got fed up with seeing them in -next and getting nowhere, and
thought that if the maintainers won't pick them up maybe you would just
take them directly now since it's been ages and they have not gotten any
negative feedback and a merge window is open.

Andrew added his signed-off-by when he took them into his queue, I
retained that when I grabbed the patches into a mainline git clone from
-next, but I can just drop those if that's inappropriate.

I should not have said "merge" in the subject - my bad.

I'll send them as two individual patches by mail (unless you prefer a git
tree, then I can easily set that up as well).
