Which of the patches mentioned in the bug report?

The ones mentioned in:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28402#c44

Or your patch from

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28402#c47

?

I am already testing the next bisect kernel and I am quite close 10-15
commits in exactly the area described in the bug report. If
30d6c72c4a760cfc9069ee100786e4d6cf6de59d turns out to be good, like it
seems, then the issue must have been introduced between it and the sluggy
6ad86c311a8b8a6d856527a1b6ba21790ab7054b mentioned below.

Thanks,
Martin
