On basis of description I'm going to take this the slow way (next merge
window).  If you want it backported to stable I don't mind but I haven't
marked it as such so you'll have to request it explicitly after the
patch is in Linus' tree.  It's reasonably likely the scripts will
pick this one up anyway though...

Thanks,

Jonathan
