It's unclear what kernel this is against. It applies quite badly to
mainline. I fixed all that up then lost the result :( It doesn't apply
cleanly to 2.6.34 either.

I was going to steal your changelog and add it to Jason's patch but
Jason's patch generates a reject storm against mainline too.

Giving up.
