Btw: This is how you can verify that I did not alter any code between the branch in linux-next
and the one in the pull request:

$ git branch prove_signal_v4 v3.16
$ git branch prove_signal-cleanup v3.16
$ git checkout prove_signal_v4
$ git pull git:// signal_v4
$ git checkout prove_signal-cleanup
$ git pull git:// signal-cleanup
$ git diff prove_signal_v4..prove_signal-cleanup | wc -l

Again, sorry for any inconvenience caused.
