I'm backporting them too, but now I will give up my patches:)

The first one is a must, which should be applied to 3.17 and 3.18.
The second one doesn't apply to 3.17 or 3.18.
The third may be applied to v3.17 and v3.18, but it shouldn't be applied
according to the stable-kernel doc because no user reports such a bug yet.
Regards
Gerry
