Yeah, I suppose, I admit I've lost track of the process. 

I'm not sure how to submit patches for this case. The "major fixes"
are patches 6/18, 13/18 14/18 and 17/18; (the rest of the patches are 
cruft-fixes). Taken alone, these four will not apply cleanly. 

I could prepare a new set, with just these four; asuming these are
accepted into 2.6.22, then once 22 comes out, Jeff's .23 tree won't 
merge cleanly.  

What's the right way to do this?
