This appears to be clean and straightforward, so if nobody else has
commented on this by the time -rc1 comes out, I suggest you rebase it
and send it to the patch system. (See
http://www.arm.linux.org.uk/developer/patches/info.php for details
-- make sure you read it carefully.)

Has this issue been hitting real-world users of the kernel, or is
this fixing a latent bug?

Cheers
