I am not involved in the merging part and would thus not be the one
applying Stephen's patch. I would like the iwlwifi patch that uses
UTS_RELEASE as well as Stephen's fix to find it in the right place to go
in though (end up in linux-2.6).

This is perhaps something John and I should discuss separately.

Thank you
