I applied this, but it is at best borderline for outside the
merge window.  It doesn't fix an OOPS nor a security issue nor
an entry in the 2.6.x regression list, therefore strictly speaking
this fix is not appropriate at this time.

Please apply this criteria when deciding whether to submit future
fixes for net-2.6 inclusion.
