Hi Manfred,

If you feel like helping with maintainance, these two fixes should
also go into stable. Once they have appeared in mainline, you can send
them to the stable list, mentioning the upstream commit ID.

[ If you put the Cc: tag in the sign off area, then the stable
  submission occurs automatically. Sorry, I probably should have
  explained that before. ]

Thanks,
Richard
