I applied this to the latest -tip kernel and tested on both real
hardware and in our simulator.  Everything appears to be behaving as
expected.

I still need to work on the other patch in the patchset to get our

clear path forward there, and that is (mostly) a separate issue.

Thanks again for catching this mistake, Linus!
