    hm, well spotted. I'm not sure what happened here - possibly the patch
    was merged into an x86 tree (and hence linux-next) but later got lost.
    Or possibly not, and I just screwed up.

    Either way, it's a pretty important patch - we marked it for -stable
    backporting.

    I resurrected my copy and shall send it along to the x86 guys soon.
