Subject: Re: [PATCH] Added CONFIG_VFAT_FS_DUALNAMES option

ok, then what about pushing the whole patch into -stable?

The 'bug' in this case is like a security hole, with Microsoft
demonstrating an active exploit. This falls outside the normal range
of bug fixes for -stable, but I think you'd have to agree that the
whole situation is unusual.
