Yes, I will definitely prepare a new patch at some point. The only
hardware I have to test this on is an old IBM X40 and the Lenovo X260.
(I have a T410 with a busted screen that I could try it on maybe.) But
not much else.

I don't know if I can get to this in the next few weeks, since I am
travelling. If someone would like to clean up the patch and move
forward without me, no problem. Otherwise I will get to it eventually.


Thanks,

Adam
