Hi Dave,

these patches are in SUSE's enterprise linux based on 3.12. So I picked
them from there. Testing is covered by our QA, but of course, with some
additional patches on the top of them which do not satisfy the stable
rules (because they add features).

Despite the patches fix real problems, if you prefer me not to take such
patches, I will drop them and will apply no more.

thanks,
