So I really don't like getting these outside the merge window. These
kinds of patches _can_ introduce bugs, and I see noi real upside to
doing them outside the merge window once the initial "avoid lots of
possible merge conflicts" bulk was done.

I've taken this, but I don't want to see any more. This is very
clearly "development" not "fixes". It goes into the merge window, not
rc kernels.
