I applied your patch to the m68k for-3.6/for-linus branch.
I'll ask Linus to pull later in the rc cycle (right now I don't have
anything else
queued for 3.6).
Still, I think it's better to just collect acks and send it to Linus
in one shot,
so it can go into stable in one shot too.

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
