Yeees. The patch is ready and even seems to work, but I still can't (re)write
the comments. Will try to finish tomorrow.

But. We need something simple and backportable, so I am going to send the
patch below first. As you can see this is your "sabotage" change, just
the new helper was renamed + s/!GP_IDLE/GP_PASSED/ fix. And the only reason
I can't send it today is that somehow I can't write the changelog ;)

So I would be really happy if you send this change instead of me, I am going
to keep "From: peterz" anyway.

Oleg.
