Both commits 61f77eda and e66f17ff already made it into the 3.12 stable
tree, probably because of SLES 12 (actually that's how I noticed them).

But I guess I screwed up the stable CC, stable@vger.kernel.org.#.v3.12
somehow doesn't look right, not sure if the CC in the patch header
suffices. Looks like Jiri Slaby added the patches to 3.12, putting him
on CC now.
