Specifically, "waiting to hit mainline" is not an option since they are
currently queued for .35, but we need a minimal fix in .34 -- this is
the "stable backport". If this "stable backport" is simply a subset of

and sent to Linus immediately. I obviously don't have access to a setup
which can replicate this particular problem.
