Please make this easier.

afacit the patches to which you refer are already in mainline, so this is
*not* a "-mm" patch. It is needed in mainline, correct?

And if it fixes a bug then it is needed in 2.6.25.

Is that correct?

Who is the person who who knows the answer to this?

Does this mean that the patch wasn't runtime tested? If so, how do you
know there is a bug?

This changelog doesn't actually tell us that this patch fixed a bug.

It should tell us what the bug is, and how it fixed it, please.
