As we were discussing this on Monday, and the review cycle for 2.6.27.3
started last Saturday, it would have been pretty hard to get it into
2.6.27.3 :)

I need to see the patch in Linus's tree first, before it can go into any
stable release. Is it in there yet? If so, please send me the git
commit id and I'll queue it up for the next -stable round.

thanks,
