Hi Stefan / Gerry,

Happy to inform you i have tested stefan's backport-patches on Intel and AMD:

- Patches apply cleanly to kernel's 3.18.6 and 3.17.8 and compile.
(hmm, 3.17 seems to be already EOL according to www.kernel.org ?)
- Fixes the subtle issues i had.

So .. Tested-by: Sander Eikelenboom <linux@eikelenboom.it>

Thanks !
