Done.

BTW, Greg, perhaps -logterm releasing policy should be revised somehow.
Currently we have .32, .33, .34, .35 -longterm, what is kind a much. If
I could suggest something, would be nice to have longterm chosen
versions predictable and constants i.e. one from every 3 kernel
releases, like .35, .38, .41 ... . That would make distributions, that
try to do release every half year very happy, because they will know
what kernel to choose, which will be widely supported and tested. Also
developers will have a bit less work with backporting fixes, as having
same bug in n and n-3 release is less probable, than having the same bug
in n and n-1.
