I'd actually like the owner for this to send me the patches - I don't go 
out downloading things from patchwork, and quite frankly, I was expecting 
Eric Biederman to follow up on these issues, since that's where the new 
requirements came from. Maybe the patches are already waiting in Greg's 
tree or something?

But if people are just waiting around for others to take them, if somebody 
who has tracked this issue (hint hint, Larry) sends me the final patches, 
I can take them that way too.
