In reviewing some of the random patches in the Android AOSP common.git
tree, I noticed this one, and found this discussion which petered out
without resolution.  Were there any objections still, or did this just
slip through the cracks?

Note, there's also this follow-on fix from Colin, which probably
should be included if the parent patch is merged:
https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/common.git/+/a2acc58bc7460a03627f20842a7169d7a1328299
