I'm not worried about the *original* patch. I'm worried about the
incremental one.

Your original patch never applied to my tree - I think it was based on
-mm or something. So I couldn't verify my "let's go back to the
explicit 'waiters'" incremental patch against reverting and
re-applying the original patch.

So I'd like you to re-verify that that incremental patch really is
solid, and does what your original one did.
