I spent about an hour convincing myself that this patch does the right
thing. I *think* it does, but it certainly is not obvious. It's
always nicer if the get/put are in the same function or in functions
that obviously correspond to each other. But you didn't create this
mess, so I don't hold you responsible for fixing it :)
