About this one: thanks for suggesting this and being constructive, I'll do
ASAP (if I don't forget) this for the -bk tree. However, I think that Greg KH
for the stable tree would prefer a local tested patch rather than a global
one with possible side effects, right Greg?

Also, I hope this discussion does not count as a vote for the -stable tree
inclusion (since dropping GCC 2 support in the -stable tree is exactly the
purpose of this tree, right ;-) ? ).
