Hey Rabin,
Sorry to chime in late, just getting back from the holidays. Since it
sounds like the above patch would need more testing and we're way too
late in the -rc cycle, I'm suggesting we revert your original patch
c0afabd3d553c521e003779c127143ffde55a16f and we can try to get this
solved and tested properly for 3.3.

Linus: Could you revert c0afabd3d553c521e003779c127143ffde55a16f ?

thanks
-john
