Dave, Yes, I did check the link you gave to me. However, it was empty
(no patch there) when emailing you, so I thought none of those been
queued up yet. It is also empty now. If I clicked the "patches" link,
it pointed me to http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/project/netdev/list/
which it has patches but I believe it is not for the stable. Please
let me know if I am missing anything.

Thanks for the reviewing.

OK, thanks for letting me know.
