Both patches applied, thanks. What do you think would be the importance
of getting this into stable kernels? We can't get one of the patches in
without the other, so they'd both have to be backported. The second one
is still fairly small, so would qualify for stable, I think.

However, given that it's taken a long time for somebody to notice this,
I'm not sure if this is something that people care about too much in the
stable kernels.
